The Broadway East series of paintings illustrated my memory and experience as I walk through the neighborhood of Lower East Side in Manhattan. The repetitive rectangular street signs, metal ladders hanging down from the red ocher tenants present an interesting visual experience to me, and the daily exposure to these subjects left a subconscious interest of architecture, spaces, and the fragment memorization of the spatial composition of the area. Each subject was processed, simplified, and recreated in my mind and later transformed into lines and shapes on the canvas.
