I know a man who wanted to run
but he didn't know where to run to
so he sat still, paralyzed by fear
fear of doing the wrong thing
fear of making the wrong move
he was afraid of waking the piranhas
afraid of paying the consequences
so he sat still, ready to run.
"Ms. Bynar's works' power arrives in the way in which her subjects' thoughtfulness manifests itself outward in delicate gesticulations. The direction of the glance, the downward shrug of the shoulder, or the furrow in a brow influences Ms. Bynar's meticulously constructed compositions. These facial and corporeal movements suddenly become moments of striking action that radiates throughout the whole of each of her works."
