Object Detail


Description
Over Oaxaca is one of Binney's Pacific Frigate Bird series, when he started to hang his birds against large expanses of flat skies. This emphasis on smooth space contrasts with the strong, textured handling of paint used on the bird. His earlier paintings gave more prominence to landscape. Binney's fascination with birds comes from his lifelong interest in ornithology and bird watching.
