About the Work
This work shows Binney's characteristic graphic and hard-edged style. It is also a responce to environmental concerns. In his artist's statement for a 1976 exhibition called New Zealand Drawing, Binney wrote: 'Whether or not [my work] relates to any or some of the canons of art topicality I cannot say, though I see nothing inappropriate in offering a prayer for pure air, clean water and growing life in this and the coming century; hence the act of drawing.'
