The Cherry Blossoms reinterpret, with playful irony, the traditional subject of landscape painting. Hirst combines thick brushstrokes and elements of gestural painting, referencing both Impressionism and Pointillism, as well as Action Painting. The monumental canvases, which are entirely covered in dense bright colors, envelope the viewer in a vast landscape that traverses the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. Cherry Blossoms are at once a subversion and homage to the great artistic movements of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. They are part of the pictorial investigation carried out by Hirst since the start of his career, which explores color, beauty, perception and the role of the artist.
