Gothic Glory on Paper

Eric Standley’s ground-breaking creations have brought viewers closer to 12th-century artistry, while also breaking barriers and completely revolutionising paper art.

Have you ever entered an imposing gothic church and felt absolutely overwhelmed by its beauty and by a feeling of reverence inspired by the lacelike work on stone and stained-glass windows? On the other hand, have you ever visited a Moorish palace and found yourself standing in awe, staring at the incredibly elaborate and exquisite decoration of walls, windows and patios? Inevitably, this makes us wonder at the amazing genius, creativity and artistic skills of mankind and, particularly, of all those involved in the building of such admirable sites.
