Statement

I reference Søren Kierkegaard’s essay Either/Or as a metaphor for my natural attraction to paradoxes. I am dyslexic. By constantly switching left and right hemispheres of my brain I unconsciously separate broadly holistic observations with obsessively detailed fractions. Gothic and Islamic architectural ornamentation, Fractals and the work of Kierkegaard all appear linked by faith in the infinite while met with the impedance of doubt and physical tolerance. My work is a continuation of this observation by replacing truth with a dependency on eternally opposing either/or logic.

Bio

Eric Standley received his B.F.A. from the Massachusetts College of Art and his M.F.A. from Savannah College of Art and Design. His current work has been exhibited across the United States in eighteen galleries and museums in 2010, winning five national and international awards.

Eric is an Assistant Professor of Studio Art and the Foundations of Art and Design Coordinator for the School of Visual Arts at Virginia Tech. He sleeps on rare occasions and dreams that with hard work and concentration he might one day become a modernist. He holds allegiance to a faith of his own construction, which is reinvented on a daily basis.
