NOTES
The smeared and blotched application of color—a verdant green accented by bright spots of red, pink, and blue—resembles lush, blooming vegetation. This work approximates the forest surrounding Winston Branch’s studio, which he constructed in his home country of St. Lucia following three decades in London. The influence of location is an important aspect of Branch’s artwork. To capture the energy of a landscape, he often taps into his memories of past residences and travels.
