Peter Callesen paper art


Peter Callesen este un artist danez (n. 1967) caruia ii place sa se exprime utilizand un material comun, banal, respectiv hartia, preferata lui fiind cea de marime A4. Prin faptul ca hartia este prezenta in majoritatea locuintelor, fiind aproape pretutindeni, creatiile lui Callesen sunt cu atat mai neasteptate, surprinzatoare la fel ca o astfel de utilizare a ei.

In realizarea artei lui, el foloseste numai o singura foaie. Peter incearca mereu sa coreleze sau sa exprime o idee utilizand atat materialul din spatiul decupat cat si insusi spatiul decupat. Practic creeaza doua lumi, una vizuala si una imaginara care se completeaza reciproc, punandu-ne in fata o anumita intamplare sau trezindu-ne anumite sentimente.

“The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works.

The paper cut sculptures explore the probable and magical transformation of the flat sheet of paper into figures that expand into the space surrounding them. The negative and absent 2 dimensional space left by the cut, points out the contrast to the 3 dimensional reality it creates, even though the figures still stick to their origin without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in many of the cuts.” – Peter Callesen

“This maze mapping of the brain shows at the same time confusion and a feeling of getting lost in the detail, which in turn disables any rational overview for a while. Not until the sculpture is seen at a distance and its entirety drawn in can you create order in the chaos.” – Peter Callesen
