Elegant Paper Cut Art by Eric Standley
Elegant Paper Cut Art by Eric Standley. Fabulous collection of paper art by American artist Eric Standley, who has his individual style. He applies several layers of paper in order to achieve their peacefully meditative forms. Brillant technique and glorious color. Elegant simplicity looks classic and precious. 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. 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.
“My vector drawing practice is inspired by geometry from Gothic and Islamic architectural ornamentation in an attempt to capture a reverence for the infinite. I am interested in the conceptual migration from the permanence and massiveness of stone to the fragility and intimacy of paper, as well as the idea of combining twelfth-century aesthetics with a contemporary technology-based practice”.
