The pathways installation presents a series of paper panels, painted and hand cut that evoke river patterns and topographical references as well as arterial, circulatory structures found in nature and in the human body. Imagery for these works was inspired by cracks in roadways and reflections observed in puddles and ponds around Toronto. This series contemplates the interdependent and tangled relationship between natural and constructed systems and the primacy of water.
