Artist Statement Haile Binns:
If every artist is steward to a certain energy, I steward the darkness, the soil, the seedpod still closed to light. Through earth and rock texture, contrasting color, and sharp emotional marks my work discovers the variegation within blackness, and strives to express the possibility of balance in precisely those places we tend to fear and marginalize as a culture. It has been my experience that balancing there, stillness is always quick-changing into movement, blackness being torn through with color and light. Thus darkness, like every other aspect of life, is revealed simply as primal change. My art is a celebration of the lover, the monk, and the warrior's embodiment of that.
