Eric Standley’s Laser-Cut Paper Stained Glass Windows
Artist Eric Standley layers hundreds of laser-cut sheets of paper using the positive and negative spaces to create depth and perspective. The result is a truly unique work of art that creates the distinct impression that the ornate carvings are in fact stained glass windows as opposed to mere pieces of pedestrian paper. Inspired by Gothic and Islamic architecture, the various works bring to mind the beautiful Northern Rose window of the medieval Chartres Cathedral in France. Standley received his Master of Fine Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design and is currently an Associate Professor of Studio Art and the Foundations of Art and Design Coordinator for the School of Visual Arts at Virginia Tech.
