Peter Callesen (*1967 in Herning, lives in Copenhagen) has extended paper cutting into sculpting, composing delicate and imaginative objects. Since his studies in London and Arhus he works almost exclusively with paper and therein explores the relationship between two- and three-dimensionality. With a scalpel he delineates and then forms silhouettes that compose a narrative singularity with the background. His themes range from fairy tales to religion and his motives, small birds, spiders, wardrobes, castles, staircases, angels, sofas and temples, are sculpted with an incredible love for detail.
