Bingham earned her M.F.A. from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and a B.F.A. from Cornell.

In Bingham’s latest work, foreground and background vie for space. The lumpy central figure in many of the paintings contains both a linear structure and atmospheric space. In some paintings the “ground” appears wedged between the figure and the edges of the painting. In others the edge is overtly acknowledged by a scalloped boarder, moving the work towards painting- object.
