Jonathan Binet

Jonathan Binet uses traditional elements of painting - canvas, stretcher bars, paint, etc. - in non-traditional ways. Stretching canvas over irregular forms, enabling stretcher bars to peak into view, and allowing the work to spill into it’s architectural surroundings, are a few of the ways in which Binet deconstructs the conventions of painting. Binet’s studio practice incorporates elements of performance, using his body to manipulate the material, the evidence of which can be seen as footprints, stains, and cuts. Repeatedly using raw linen in his works, Binet’s works take on an earthy, subdued color palette and tranquil tone despite their brute physicality. 


Binet’s solo exhibitions include Bonner Kunstverein in Germany, Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen in Switzerland, Centre d’Art Neuchatel in France, Miart in Italy, Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux in France, and Palais de Tokyo in Paris. In 2008 he won the Lauréat du prix des amis des Beaux-Arts, Prix Gérard Viquel.
