The show marks Binion’s works returns to Italy for the first time since the 2017 Venice Biennale. This time, he’s showing a body of work that revolves around the use of secondary colors, and it’s conceived as a continuation of the artist’s “DNA” series. Binion’s paintings explore the relationship between past and present, the memory and what’s current.
Talking about the series Binion stated that he was interested in, “how to bring something into being: not to have it fabricated but to work in an applied way.” Each of the large-scale canvases is filled with minuscule details and personal memorabilia which only the aware observer can notice.
McArthur lived and worked in New York for almost 20 years, alongside prominent figures of the art world such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Jeannette Montgomery Barron and gallerist Mary Boone. The work evokes the ‘70s and ‘80s New York art scene in his practice, layering ink and paint over pages of his personal phone book and other documents. Through Binion’s eyes, the visitor is immersed in the artist’s past, the eclectic world he experienced during his days in the city.
“Ink:Work” is on view at at MDC Belgioioso (Piazza Belgioioso, 2 – 20134 Milan, Italy) from until October 27, 2018.
