“Make the viewer experience the beauty of the textures, the lines, the colors. A torn edge, a roughness, a jagged slash across the paper – form them so they reveal themselves. Present them, combine them, contrast them so they play against each other, so each reveals its soul and so that each touches the soul and the emotional center of one who sees.”
