Ethereal paper installation art by Peter Gentenaar

Peter Gentenaar, who was originally a printmaker, only started dabbling with papermaking when the commercial paper he used wasn’t good enough for his engraved works. It’s taken his work in a whole new direction as he is now known for his massive paper sculptures. These take on a life-like quality during the pulp drying and shrinking process as he makes the paper from scratch.
