Biography

Carroll Dunham is known for his paintings of cartoonish, humanoid forms such as penis-nosed men, bulbous shapes reminiscent of sexual or digestive organs, and direct, humorous compositions of exposed vaginas. Mixing elements of Pop art, Surrealism, Neo-Expressionism, and Abstract Expressionism through a stylistically rich career joining abstraction and figuration, Dunham's paintings and works on paper variously reference Arshile Gorky, Paul Gauguin, Philip Guston, and the comics of R. Crumb.
