McArthur Binion DNA-Work 2019

DNA:Work and the Under:Conscious Drawings – McArthur Binion – Postponed

McArthur Binion’s DNA:Work paintings use geometry as an index of labor and time, repurposing the Minimalist grid as a vehicle for examining a deeply personal narrative. At a distance, the paintings present as vivid, geometric patterns demarcated by an oil-stick grid. Upon closer inspection, each composition reveals a substrate of tightly collaged images and reproductions of personal documents including pages from the artist’s phone book, his birth certificate and photographs of his childhood home in Macon, Mississippi. Binion refers to this layer of images as the “under-conscious: the character just under the surface, close to the skin.”
