Now this is something I’ve never seen before. This guy, Peter Callesen, makes paper cut artwork that he describes as both “magical” and “tragic.” I think it’s a very fitting description. His work is magical in the sense that 2D is transformed into 3D. But it’s tragic, he says, because the 3D figures remain attached to the 2-dimensional paper. They are not free-standing but trapped. Most of Callesen’s work consists simply of paper and glue yet they are extremely intricate. Below are favorites as well as links to comments on some of my classmates’ blogs.
