New Incredible Laser Cut Paper Art by Eric Standley

Eric Standley, a Virginia-based artist who works with laser-cut paper, creates amazing and awe-inspiring layered paper cuts of extraordinary complexity that successfully marry Gothic and Islamic architectural elements in tiny cathedral-like spaces.

“The reverence for these structures seems to have to do with the infinite,” explains the artist (whom we’ve written about before here). “It’s trying to project something that’s not even human.”

While his work does indeed seem to inspire the same sort of reverence that a massive cathedral or complex mandala might, the origin of his stunning artwork doesn’t seem quite as glorious. The artist says that he decided to explore this technique when he had accidentally discovered a pattern in some cereal boxes he had been working with.

If you find yourself in Arizona, consider swinging by the Mesa Art Center, where his work will be on display as part of the Fold, Paper, Scissors exhibition until August 10th.
