Over the course of a career spanning more than 40 years, Binion has cultivated a unique visual style that involves building an “under conscious” to his paintings with repetitious photocopies of private documents such as his birth certificate. These sections of biographic information are then meticulously covered with grid marks in thickly applied oil stick—a mode of abstraction that is alive with personal narrative and distinction within an artistic movement that was often exclusionary and deliberately impersonal.
