Out Of This World

{The Roots Of Heaven}

Lately, I have become quite obsessed 
with the work of Danish contemporary artist,
Peter Callesen.

{Broken Bird}

Today being Earth Day, 
I thought I would share some of his pieces here,
 since so many of his works deal directly 
with the theme of nature and the environment.

{The Core Of Everything}

{Fall}

{Running Red Poppies}

{Broken Flowers}

{Five Forgotten Thoughts}

{The Birds Of The Air}

Too see more of Peter Callesen's
amazing paper works
and installations,
visit his site,


{Happy Earth Day}

  8. great piece, babe. these are good. I love the titles almost as much as the work. 'roots of heaven' and 'five forgotten thoughts'...

  9. These are awesome... but those poppies are a little gruesome looking. Everything else, awesome!

  10. I love when I open up your latest post and see something totally unfamiliar. I know you'll give a proper introduction and I'll have a new go to source. This was definitely one of those days!! Totally agree with Catherine about those poppies but I still sort of like them. But then again, I sometimes like sad art. Not sure what that says about me...

  29. Really beautiful, and it shows a resurrection of the almost lost art of "scherenschnite"...(can't be sure of the spelling) or paper cutting. He's done a great job of taking his talent and clever thinking into a medium that was ripe for a redo.
    Thanks for sharing.

  50. Love Callesen's work. Wasn't aware of his work, thanks for sharing and thanks for you kind comments on my Hopper painting interpretion. Enjoying your blog.

  51. I find something so powerfully serene about skilled paper artwork such as the sublime pieces above. It resonates with a wonderfully timeless quality (evocative in some regards of vintage and antique silhouette portraits) that sooths my nerves and makes me smile.

    Thank you very much for highlighting these creative gems, and also for your lovely comment on Chronically Vintage. It's a joy to make your acquaintance, my dear! :)


    Wishing you a beautiful evening,
    ♥ Jessica

    Happy Earth day to you - wonderful & beautiful friend.

    P.S No, I won't let you stay at Edgewater! You are a staying w. us - and then we will take you there for brunch!
