Two Dimensions Colorful Paper Sculptures Suspended in Mid-Air by Peter Gentenaar.
Delicate organic sculptures dance overhead in these captivating works by Netherland-based artist Peter Gentenaar. In many of his installations, the artist suspends his magnificent, large-scale paper pieces from the ceiling to create a surreal environment filled with abstract bursts of colorful clouds.
As a printmaker, Gentenaar’s search for a better type of paper led him to an unexpected process of creating his own custom beater that processes and mills long-fiber paper pulp into the material he now uses in his artwork.
“My sculptures start as totally 2-dimensional, colored sheets of pulp laying on my vacuumtable. The forms in my work are caused by pulp drying and shrinking in unison. The simplicity of the material, which is the carrier, the color, the texture and the form, in one, makes working with it wonderful and direct.” – Peter Gentenaar
