Post lot text
“Whenever I feel like home cooking, I do the DNA:Work. I always will. The DNA:Work incorporates entries from my address book. If you look through my address book, itʼs a motherfucker: Romare Bearden, James Baldwin, Ishmael Reed. Bearden was my oldest daughterʼs godfather. I was always social. One of my closest painter friends is Stanley Whitney, who I met originally through Judy Pfaf…I used photographs of my own hands in the painting. I am fortunate to be ambidextrous; I use both of my hands. I build the work up slowly, in layers.” McArthur Binion
