Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper | 2022
Each piece in Michael DeSutter’s new series is a celebration and a reflection—a visual representation of the accomplishment each of us feels when we reach a particular point in our life or journey. Paths, a series of limited edition prints of DeSutter’s collages, was created as a series of maps that entice the viewer to follow different routes across the paper.
The vibrant series reminds us of the options each of us face as we create our own paths—and how we feel when thinking back on the options we had versus the ones that we took. Each piece is rendered on the same sized surface area as a reminder that there are many ways to proceed, and only we can write our own path through life. When viewed together, the colorful works convey a feeling of hope and serendipity—that two people can travel completely different paths and somehow arrive at the same moment in place and time.
“No matter on which path you are, keep walking. Even wrong paths can lead you to the right path if you keep walking. You get stuck when you become a security guard of a path.” - Shunya
