Family Pattern features a layered design derived from the floral patterns of moccasin maker, and great grandmother to the artist, Margaret Paulin of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Using plywood and mirrored acrylic, the artist echoes the natural/reclaimed materials of the store. The laser cut plywood edges of the floral pattern mimic the visual cues of tanned leather cut, while the mirrored surface reflects the surrounding environment into the artwork.
