Painter, printmaker, teacher, writer and ornithologist Don Binney (1940–2012) was a mercurial presence on the New Zealand cultural scene from his meteoric rise to fame in the early 1960s. His unmistakable, stylised depictions of birds and the Te Henga coastline are imprinted into the psyche of our nation. Don Binney: Flight Path follows the painter from Te Henga / Bethells Beach – his artistic tūrangawaewae – throughout Aotearoa, Latin America and Europe. Drawing extensively on Binney's letters, journals, and other writings, award-winning author and curator Gregory O’Brien takes us into the world of this gifted but paradoxical artist.
