1. "Nevada", the six painting in a series of "Nocturnes" was completed in 2009. Each Nocturne takes its name after an individual state Bingaman has visited, and each is composed according to the nighttime experiences he has had in that state. Other states in the series thus far, are Arizona, California, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah.

  4. How I think with paint in 2010. Sitting down for another round of Leucovorin Calcium and Fluorouracil I decided to think about painting. Or rather, try to think about thinking with paint. I believe I copped that term from the James Elkins book, "What Painting Is". It makes sense to me. We move the pigment and binder around in a pre-linguistic rush. Forming the world with haptic glee. Feeling into the plane with our eyes. However, the meaning of the work DOES NOT come first and then the work is created to represent that meaning. Like Miles Davis said, "I'll play it first and tell you what it is later." The meaning percolates up from the ground. The ground is the surface where the painter freely roams in an open world boundless of artificial constraints, and with there being no right way of pushing the paint. Painting is like divination but without asking a question first. The paint becomes symbolic of things in the world that we name. Paint takes on anthropic principles in which values are consistent with conditions for life as we know it. We don't create something new but discover with paint relationships that we appreciate from experiencing Reality. We don't see something and then reproduce it with the filter of our ego. We don't give a soulful take on Nature. Why water Nature down with our ego? We create natural relationships or like true mathematicians, painters are discoverers of naturally occurring objects. The painting emerges during the process of self-organization.

  5. For the second motion painting, the Barnstormers used a smaller space, a faster pace, and a limited palette of just black and white.

    I appreciate the attempt. At the same time, this video needs editing badly. I would have liked to actually SEE the pieces, rather than zooming in and out with a shaky camera.

    Good try, though.
