DESCRIPTION

Artist Eric Standley creates paper sculptures that live where technology, art history, and mathematics meet. Rich and detailed, they evoke images of Gothic rose windows and Islamic architecture.  But, Standley has moved beyond traditional ornamentation as each sculpture becomes more complex than the last. The artist begins with comprehensive vector drawings.  He explores the impact of color, shape and geometry within a three dimensional space. With great care, Standley layers and stack the paper to create the final work.  The results invite intense examination and contemplation.

Eric Standley is an associate professor in the School of Visual Arts in the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech.
