Guest Artist: Eric Standley

Over 100 layers of PAPER created this image
by Eric Standley

I found a link to High Fructose New Contemporary Art Magazine's feature on Eric Standley's stunning laser cut paper -- what to call it? -- stained glass-style creations, for lack of a better term. This man creates truly breathtaking work. Go. See. Shoo! Run along now. You'll be grateful that you did.~~GH

From Standley's statement about his artform: "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."
