Artist Eric Standley laser cuts sheets of paper, developing intricately patterned bureaucracy with the aid of stacking the sheets over 100 layers excessive. The final works replicate classical stained glass windows and are inspired by using geometric styles determined in each Gothic and Islamic structure. these days those designs reference fractal geometry, a rhythmic pattern this is self-replicating.

“These rhythms are discovered at a cosmological scale inside the ever-expanding universe, throughout culture and time in the Gothic and Islamic structure in addition to at the profoundly fundamental constructing blocks of life,” stated Standley. “While a DNA braid is viewed from the pinnacle down, the layered double helix rotation abides via the golden ratio (phi). Waves alongside the braid disguise and display strata of information.”

Standley applied this golden ratio at some stage in the development system for his portions Kismet and Phidala. Using phi as a manual for sure compositional decisions, Standley deviated from his usually strict mathematical rotations.

Standley’s solo exhibition Strata at Marta Hewett Gallery in Cincinnati, Oh carries both of these new phi-targeted works and continues through June 3, 2017. you may see greater of the artist’s works on his internet site.
