Peter Gentenaar: Paper Sculpture More than 100 of Peter Gentenaar’s ethereal paper sculptures were installed inside the Abbey church of Saint-Riquier in France. Gothic architecture + paper art = SWOON! I love how the curves and organic forms of the paper sculptures echo the beautiful vaulting and cluster piers of the church interior – look how the sculptures have ribbing just like the ribbed groin vaults! Gothic architecture, facilitated by the invention of the flying buttress, is characterized by the towering, luminous spaces created by the higher ceilings and huger windows that flying buttresses allowed for (compared to the engaged buttresses of Romanesque architecture). So the true lightness and airiness of the suspended paper objects reminds us how the seemingly light and airy walls are actually a monumental stone structure. Just gorgeous, and amazing photos too.

Currently lives and works in Ferney Volaire, France • Passion They are super fine lacy-paper-cuttings done by a simple pair of scissors. My passion is to create a finest cutoff beyond the level of the very time-consuming needle lace making. I don’t follow traditional but I am trying to create a mixture of the traditional and modern styles and to produce my own world through this super fine lacy-paper-cuttings technique. • Awards 2008 Le Grand Prix International « PAPER ART » Museum Charmey Swiss, The first prize 2007 Le Salon des Contemporains 2007 Honfleur, the Second prize 2007 Triennal Palmares du Grand Prix des Distinctions Français et Etrangers, Silver medal 2006 Le Grand Prix International M.C.A Cannes-Azur, Gold medal 2007 Le Grand Prix International M.C.A Cannes-Azur, Gold medal

Peter Callesen Peter Callesen (born in Copenhagen in 1967) is a Danish artist and author. Callesen is renowned for his talent in combining the minimalism of a big crisp white sheet of paper with the complexity of meticulously cut and folded paper and uses the two to build out some aesthetically pleasing compositions. Particularly noteworthy are his works where the remains of the cut and folded objects are literally shadows of the objects former self. Thomas Allen My career has been marked by a series of firsts—first NY show, first sold-out print, first art fair, first magazine commission, first book cover, first book, first media award, first television appearance, first appearance on the side of a building, first appearance on a rodeo ticket… This is about a recent first that came in the form of an email from AARP (just days before my 50th birthday) that had nothing to do with my impending membership eligibility. It was from Michael Wichita, Interim Director of Photography at AARP Media, inviting me to work on a print and iPad project for AARP Magazine. Seeing this as both ironic and serendipitous, I accepted. Unfortunately, due to no fault of mine, the project was killed by AARP before it got past the 3rd proofing stage. Things like this happen all of the time.
PapercutsByOren There has been a lot of interest in my work even though I primarily make ketubahs and Judaica so I decided to start making affordable papercuts that have would appeal to everyone. This is the first ACEO I put for sale in my Etsy shop at: It is a limited edition papercut. I will only make 25 of this design - each one signed and numbered. Once the 25th is sold, that’s it, the design is retired for good.
