About Carroll Dunham

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.

American, b. 1949, New Haven, Connecticut
