One Sheet of Paper

We already had a post of Weird Toilet Paper Roll Art, showing Yuken Teruya’s beautiful cutouts of Toilet paper rolls, and now I present another super creative artist, Peter Callesen, who does something similar, but this time out of single A4 paper sheets.

“Lately I have worked almost exclusively with white paper in different objects, paper cuts, installations and performances. A large part of my work is made from A4 sheets of paper. It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today. This is why we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper.

By taking away all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white A4 paper sheet for my creations, I feel I have found a material that we are all able to relate to, and at the same time the A4 paper sheet is neutral and open to fill with different meaning. The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works.”
