Thinking about Edges. 

The importance and subtlety of a edge in visual art. In my art.

Hard edges, sharp as a knife. Places of highest contrast, drawing the eye of the viewer, like using a exclamation mark in writing. A place to focus their attention.

The mystery and suggestion of a softer or lost edge, adding depth and inviting the viewer in, to use their imagination and solve the mystery, hinting at things not formally described.

Collectively, they support the illusion of a three-dimensional form on a flat two-dimensional surface.
