Artist's Statement

Dan Bina works in a variety of media in several modes from realism to abstraction to convey the mythologies of collective dreaming. His work seeks to find meaning in authenticity. His imagery derived from vast areas of visual culture is both semiotic and biographical. Thematic trends dominate his process where he explores dualities and binaries in a world of abundant surplus and vast scarcity. In the spirit of Buckminster Fuller's teachings, he makes a bold attempt at coming to terms with World Game theory in an era of rapid decline. He says of his process, "Every moment of work is one step closer to truth and one step closer to death. If I am not working, then there is little record of having lived. If I am working, then there is something I can leave behind to be remembered by, something for them to forgive."
