Carroll Dunham

Carroll Dunham's paintings employ uniquely stylized human figures to playfully and crudely examine painting tropes and traditions. The artist employs cartoonish semblances of nature and sexually grotesque imagery as a foil for experimenting with color and line—exemplified by his frequent use of thick black outlines around familiar subjects such as blue skies and green trees. Dunham’s work is opposed to an authorial identity through its complex integration of formal craft and philosophical thought.
