3D Laser Cut Paper – Geometric Art by

Eric Standley is an artist and educator currently living and working in Virginia. In his incredible series of 3D laser cut paper art, Standley’s work is found at the intersection of art, technology, history and mathematics.

His vector drawings were initially inspired by the geometry in Gothic and Islamic architectural ornamentation. The pieces are painstakingly assembled from laser-cut paper, layered to create elaborate 3-D works of art. Often these works are created using well over 100 layers of paper and can take months of planning and drawing. The result is so intricately detailed that the pieces must be viewed from multiple perspectives to be fully appreciated.

Standley uses an array of colors woven together with mathematical precision to create his art, combining 12th century architectural aesthetics with contemporary technology. In designing his pieces, Standley envisions three to seven layers of paper at one time, picturing how they will build upon one another. .
