beautiful paper art

Impenetrable Castle 
On the Other Side

White Hand

A few weeks ago while I was in Chicago with Johnny we happened to pass an art gallery with paper art similar to these but in much larger scales. I think this kind of work is incredible - to make something so complicated and 3-D out of a single piece of paper, while it is still connected to the the paper! 

Here is what the artist, Peter Callesen, has to say: 
"My paper works have been based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality. I find this materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form almost a magic process - or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping."
