Paper Cut Art by Eric Standley
Paper Cut Art by Eric Standley, American artist, is inspired by Gothic geometry and Islamic architectural ornamentation, but still the artist has his unique individual style. Eric Standley got his B.F.A. after graduating from the Massachusetts College of Art and M.F.A. from Savannah College of Art and Design. He is an Associate 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.
Eric Standley uses lots of layers of paper, hundred and more, roughly 1.75” deep from surface to center in order to achieve their peacefully meditative forms. The center is comprised of drawings on top of drawings with space between the two. Compositional goals are shared between these layers, but are simultaneously unique. Brilliant technique and glorious color. Elegant simplicity looks classic and precious.
