Transparent God is a large-scale piece handcrafted by Peter Callesen, where an figure is taking shape from a wide range of cut-out people. Some figures lay on the ground, while the others seen to have been pulled to make this figure, leaving only the silhouette of their form to remain. You can see some more of his large-scale sculptures here.
“By taking away all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white A4 paper sheet for my creations, I feel I have found a material that we are all able to relate to, and at the same time the A4 paper sheet is neutral and open to fill with different meaning. The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works.” — Peter Callesen
