Standley brings a whole new the term “cutting edge” with his methodical stained glass windows created entirely from laser-cut paper.
Standley stacks well over 100 sheets for many of his pieces which involve months of planning, drawing, and assembly.
The artist says his inspiration comes from the geometry found in Gothic and Islamic architectural ornamentation which he somewhat jokingly calls “folk math.
Eric’s technology-infused studio practice enables him to create complex artifacts within a realm of precision of that is often reserved for industry, mass production and scientific research.
In Standley’s words; “Technology circumscribes boundaries, as do artists. We are extended in body and mind by the advancements of what we envision and create.”
