In an exquisite nexus of mathematics, art history, and technology, artist Eric Standley (previously) creates densely stacked layers of laser-cut paper to form sculptures reminiscent of Islamic architecture or Gothic rose windows. If you’ve followed the artist’s work here on Colossal it’s clear his understanding of geometry, shape and color as it applies to paper structures has expanded greatly over the last few years as his artworks grow increasingly intricate and detailed. The pieces have also grown in scale and depth with his latest pieces standing over two feet tall.

Standley currently has work on view at CODA Paper Art 2015 and at MOCA through August 16th, 2015. He also has numerous pieces currently available through Marta Hewett Gallery.
