Installation of Perspectives: 177

January 6-April 1, 2012
Contemporary Art Museum Houston

Perspectives 177: McArthur Binion is the Houston debut for this Chicago-based, mid-career painter and the artist’s first solo museum exhibition. For this exhibition, Binion has created a new body of work that extends his visual narrative through color and geometric form. Decidedly minimal, Binion’s work embodies a strong intellect rooted in the expressive capabilities of color and abstraction. His luminous hybrid paintings are comprised of wax-based crayons pressed onto shaped wood and aluminum panels. The tactility of the painting as well as the integration of paper collage onto its surface offers a complexity to Binion’s process that is deeply devoted to the narrative of the work’s making.
