Peter’s work has been mentioned here before, but only in passing, so I thought he deserved a full post highlighting his work.  Callesen is a true master of 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 really beautiful compositions.  Particularly amazing are his works where the remains of the cut and folded objects are literally shadows of the objects former self.  A skeleton is the shadow of the body; ruins are the shadow of a huge temple.  He really brilliantly uses the positive and negative space to tell a sometimes-dark story about the past and future of his subject using only a white sheet of paper.
