William Burton Binnie

Williamstown, MA / Brooklyn, NY

William Burton Binnie is a Scottish-American painter born in Dallas, TX. 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, death, and the visual markers connected to each. At Bemis, he will focus on new paintings and drawings and exploring the region in his ongoing investigation of the sociocultural zeitgeist and collective anxiety about the state of the nation.
