Bart Keijsers Koning Interviews William Burton Binnie

Bart Keijsers Koning and William Burton Binnie, April 10, 2020
For Dallas Art Fair 2020 Bart Keijsers Koning speaks with William Burton Binnie about his work and his residency at the Bemis Art Center.

I don’t think my life or experience is interesting enough to make biographical work, but if I feel an image or idea speaks to larger emotional or sociocultural sentiments, I suppose I’m becoming more comfortable with having parts of my own history in the work, as in Childhood Bedroom, which is a painting of my boyhood home being bulldozed and which, while personal, also felt like a much larger and distinctly American pastime: razing a perfectly good home to the ground to build a newer, bigger one. - William Burton Binnie
