THE PRINT

The birds that materialised on Binney’s early canvases were the pīpīwharauroa, kererū, pīwakawaka, tūī and kōtare to whose distinctive forms he paid tribute. Before long there existed an archetypal Binney: a canvas featuring a bird suspended over an abstracted New Zealand landform. These paintings were boldly graphic, memorable and modern. On his frigatebirds, Binney reflected: ‘I think you get a real sense of the soaring animal totally free; no landmass, nothing but nature.’

We are so lucky to have the opportunity to purchase an affordable high quality print of this iconic New Zealand artwork in a relatively large size. The estates of iconic New Zealand artists can have sudden changes of heart regarding the merits of making affordable prints of iconic artworks available to the general public for purchase. Case in point - we are unfortunately no longer able to offer open edition Colin McCahon prints. With this in mind we would strongly encourage you to purchase this Don Binney print while you still can!

This offset art print has been produced on luxurious heavyweight art paper using archival inks that won't fade over time resulting in a superior print with pin-sharp detail and rich vivid colours.
  • 250gsm premium quality art art paper
  • Natural white with a smooth satin finish
  • Can be purchased framed or unframed
  • Embossed with the official Binney Estate stamp

THE ARTIST

Don Binney (1940-2012) is a well known and respected New Zealand artist who was named an officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to the arts in 1995. He has exhibited widely throughout New Zealand and has been the subject of a touring retrospective exhibition. His work is represented in many public collections including those of the Auckland City Art Gallery and Te Papa Tongarewa, Museum of New Zealand.

Binney is best known for his iconic paintings of birds. He began painting images of birds in the New Zealand landscape in the early 1960s. He has said that through bird watching he discovered a passage into the landscape and the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with it. Many of Binney’s works depict the west coast of Auckland and Northland, containing sea, sky, native birds, still life and occasionally, figures.
