The series “Boswijck” focuses on the unique cityscape of Bushwick neighborhood in Brooklyn NY. I’m intrigued by the cultural confetti reflected in its diverse and colorful architecture. The work titled “Boswijck” – the neighborhood’s original name, meaning “little town in the woods” – highlights this diversity by visually isolating different architectural styles of this neighborhood and showing them as abstract two-dimensional relics.
