    CUT: Windows to Eternity

    recent works by Eric Standley

    Opening Saturday, January 18th

    12pm - 4pm

    It is perhaps every artist's aim is to create a work that will not be reminiscent of anything

    we have seen before. His or her desire may also be that this work will be

    recognizable without a signature. The inventiveness, sensibility and

    expressive solutions Eric gives to the animation of each form, aligning

    the prominent conversation of the surface cuts and styles lead him to a

    form of sculpted engraving full of plasticity and expressionist tension

    uniquely his own. The structural balances within every composition are

    in absolute equilibrium, a pendulum of precision between design, color,

    form and faith.

    - Dr. Panagiotis Kambanis, Historian/Archeologist, Museum of Byzantine Culture

  • \The Marta Hewett Gallery is pleased to present fascinating paper works by Associate

    Professor of Art at Virginia Tech, Eric Standley. The artist received his

    B.F.A. at Massachusetts College of Art and his M.F.A. from the

    Savannah College of Art and Design. In the past year, Eric Standley's

    work has been the subject of articles in

    Hi-Fructose and Wired magazines as well as being featured in a piece on the Discovery

    Channel.

    "My vector drawing is inspired by geometry from

    Gothic and Islamic architectural

    ornamentation in an attempt to capture

    a reverse for the infinite. 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 merging of

    12th Century aesthetics with 21st

    Marta Hewett Gallery presents CUT: Windows to Eternity, Recent Works by

    Eric Standley, opening Jan. 18

    Contributed By: Robyn Carey Allgeyer | Carey Communications

    Artist Eric Standley's mandala-like drawings are cut from separate sheets of paper

    using a CNC laser. The artist, also an assistant professor at Virginia Tech, will

    discuss his process and influences on January 18 at 1:00 p.m. at Marta Hewett

    Gallery.

    The Marta Hewett Gallery is pleased to present the first solo

    exhibition in the gallery by incomparable artist Eric Standley.

    The collection of his laser cut paper drawings opens Saturday, January 18 with an

    Artist Reception from noon 4:00 p.m. The artist will discuss the development and influences on his work at 1:00 p.m. in the gallery. A catalogue of the artists work is

    presented in conjunction with this exhibition with a forward by Dr. Panagiotis

    Kambanis. CUT: Windows to Eternity will be on display through March 1, 2014.

    Marta Hewett Gallery is located in the Annex at 1310 Pendleton St. at the Pendleton

    Art Center in Over-the-Rhine.

  • It is no surprise that artist Eric Standley grew up in a household of engineers. His

    laser cut paper drawings capture a complexity of space that defies traditional

    tolerance of this fragile medium. My vector drawing is inspired by geometry from Gothic and Islamic architectural ornamentation in an attempt to capture a reverence

    for the infinite. 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 merging of

    12th Century aesthetics with 21st Century technology.

    Eric Standleys mandala-like drawings are cut from separate sheets of paper using a CNC laser. A particular pattern on one sheet of paper, once developed as a drawing,

    may take two hours to cut using the laser program. Individual cut patterns on each

    sheet of paper are designed in order to reveal the colour, line and shape below once

    the sheets are stacked. The physical depth of these drawings range from 1 to 3-inches

    and incorporate hundreds of sheets of paper. Standley developed this method of

    drawing over a two year period and continues to elaborate on the process made

    possible by todays laser technology.

    I am dyslexic. By constantly switching left and right hemispheres of my brain, I unconsciously separate an obsession with detail from a broader, holistic experience. I

    reference Soren Kierkegaards essay Either/Or as a metaphor for my recent work and my natural attraction to this paradox. I consider my vector drawings to be an external

    result of the internal equilibrium between my meticulous nature and holistic

    observations

    It is perhaps every artists aim is to create a work that will not be reminiscent of anything we have seen before. His or her desire may also be that this work will be

    recognizable without a signature. The inventiveness, sensibility and expressive

    solutions Eric gives to the animation of each form, aligning the prominent

    conversation of the surface cuts and styles lead him to a form of sculpted engraving

    full of plasticity and expressionist tension uniquely his own. The structural balances

    within every composition are in absolute equilibrium, a pendulum of precision

    between design, color, form and faith.

    Standley is an Assistant Professor of Studio Art at Virginia Tech. He received his

    B.F.A from the Massachusetts College of Art and his M.F.A from Savannah College

    of Art and Design. His drawings have appeared in over forty national exhibitions in

    the past two years, including shows at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art,

    The Shore Institute of Contemporary Art and The Taubman Museum of Art.

    Standleys work was the subject of a recent piece on the Discovery Channel, and the artist has been the subject of interviews in several publications including Hi-Fructose

    and Wired magazines.

    CUT: Windows to Eternity, recent works by Eric Standley, will be on display January

    Windows to Eternity

    ... But I saw myself the work made by the hands of an artist; my eyes were astonished by the spectacle and I really admired the craftsmanship of this man. Thus, I thought that only an

    enemy of beauty could fill with silence such a work of art, and limit oneself to the admiration

    of this creation. That is why I offer it a word and I present it the way I can, before the eyes of

    those who have never seen it... This quote comes from the Chronicle of Historical Synopsis by Constantinos Manasses,
