We've seen many paper artists on AnnaLikes in the last year, which proved to be very much appreciated. Now i'd like to introduce to you Peter Gentenaar a paper artist with extraordinary talent. He creates beautiful and ethereal paper sculptures. Gentenaar started out as a printmaker and sculptor and with time he realized the potential a sheet of paper has, and discovered many possibilities to work with it. With the agility of a leaf on a tree, as he puts it, a sheet of paper which had not dried yet, can be transformed into the most spectacular shapes, he reinforces the forms using thin ribs of bamboo that resemble the ribs of a leaf.
His latest exhibition is displayed at the abbey church of Saint-Riquier church's grand halls in northern France, the perfect backdrop for the 100 paper sculptures hanging like they were angels.
