Abstract: The paintings and drawing exhibited were made from my observation of still life and the human figure in nature. I was particularly involved with the edge perceived by the eye as volume and space meet. According to my observation of still life arrangements and the human figure in its environment, the edge exists and changes only in relation to the viewer. At first my eye receives impressions of physical variety rather than complete homogeneity in nature. I see physical variety as spaceless at this time. I realize mentally the space existing in nature. At this stage in the development of my observation I begin the painting or drawing, continually referring to nature.
