Carroll Dunham was born in New Haven, CT in 1949. He received his degree from Trinity College in Hartford, CT in 1972. Dunham currently lives and works in New York City.
Dunham is known for large-scale, semi-abstract paintings of biomorphic figures and landscapes. Charged by an energetic intensity and often violent, psycho-sexual subjects, the sensation of spontaneity in Dunham’s works is underpinned by a thoughtfully controlled approach to his medium. The rawness of his imagery, combined with the technical mastery of its execution, results in work of profound complexity.
