Eric Standley’s Intricate Laser Cut Stained Glass Paper Windows

Eric Standley works with hundreds of layers of colored paper creating intricate laser cut stain glass windows. These beautifully constructed works are made up of interlacing positive and negative spaces that seem to “float” in a fabricated suspension. He begins with a drawing, this helps him create the complex range of imagery needed to make a workable design, before cutting and assembling the paper pieces. Standley’s windows are similar in complexity to that of traditional stained glass, and 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.
