WILLIAM BINNIE was born in Dallas, TX in 1985. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and Williamstown, MA. Working mainly in the realm of painting, Binnie distills his pictorial language from a range of sources, including film, photography, politics, history, and quotidian life. His work confronts the American mythos – the imagery enshrouding a land with a complex and often dark and troubling past and present, cloaked in a smokescreen of stoic heroism- as well as larger concerns surrounding notions of power, nationalism, bigotry, war, land, and death. He has had solo exhibitions at LMAKgallery, NY; Paul Loya Gallery, LA; Greg Kucera Gallery, Seattle, WA; and has been included in several group exhibitions at institutions including MASS MoCA; Wilding Cran Gallery, LA; HVW8 Gallery, LA.
