Branching: Light and Form is a series of paintings by artist Tamblyn Gawley Griffiths exploring the way light and color play upon and through branches and leaves. They are meant to portray the feeling of being in the presence of trees as the wind blows the branches and leaves and the light filters through; when something as intangible as light appears to change the shape and color of something solid. These pieces are part of a continued exploration of branches and roots in which Tamblyn has used painting, drawing, and printmaking to present various observations of trees, often focusing on twisting branches, exposed roots, and weather-worn driftwood.
