Amazing Large Scale Papercut Art – Peter Callesen

Three Angels Trying to Escape Their Drawing (Detail)

Eugene first introduced me to Peter Callesen's work back in November of last year. Callesen's ability to create a story with simple sheets of paper inspires me to find art in everyday things. These large cut papercut installations are particularly amazing because they explore the relationship between imagination and reality, between a beautiful and calm two-dimensional world and a frighteningly scary three-dimensional one.
