This print shows a recurring subject in his work: the back of a man with his pants down, holding a gun. Dunham says, "I know that my art exists in this kind of tension between irrational, almost goofy, things and extremely tight, formal, organized things. That tension is where I live." Read Less

The artist Carroll Dunham began his painting career working on plywood after having discovered its potential in the early 1980s. Coaxing his forms to adapt to the natural textures and designs of each panel, Dunham would continue to paint wildly organic, colorful, and cartoon-like organisms as his career matured. However, his vibrant, animated forms are far from childlike, with such provocative motifs as weapons and sexual organs—sometimes with their distinctions blurred—poised for action.

Dunham has long resisted prevailing stylistic trends and consequently carved out a space for American painters to explore the possibilities of blending both abstraction and figuration. Dunham's recent hybrid of landscape and figuration demonstrate his continued desire to transcend aesthetic categories. The scenarios involving nudes in these recent paintings also reflect his ability to convey bold, perhaps unpleasant truths through superficially clumsy, unlikely subjects. Read Less
