Memorial

“I can’t do it justice.”

Our most vivid memories tend to elude capture. We try to share them with others, go Dutch on what was so meaningful to us—only to stammer in the recounting, repeating ourselves with different inflections and emphases, impotent in the face of the infinite.

Enter Robert Bingaman’s Memorial, new paintings that explore image, obsession, and the place where our compulsion to share outpaces our ability to describe.
