INSTINCTUAL FEAST explores the many facets and faces of human connection...



Instinctual Feast is the latest series by Tanmaya Bingham, comprised of five mixed-media works that explore the many facets and faces of human connection. Specifically, the series represents ideas of ecstasy, pining, pleasure, compassion, and lust – all intrinsic parts of a deeply personal yet universally understood experience.


The collage-like colored pencil and paint on panel work depict surreal, almost theatrical scenes of people and animals indulging in delectable fruits or surrounded with halos, and other metaphors for the concepts and emotions we attach to love. Through her subjects, Bingham examines love and humanity from all angles – the pleasurable and painful, the mysterious and spiritual.
