Carroll Dunham: Drawings

@ He said, She said

216 N Harvey Ave, Oak Park, IL 60302

Opening Saturday, October 17th, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, November 14th

Carroll Dunham has been making paintings that draw on the Abstract, Surrealist, and Pop painting traditions since the 1970’s. His works over time have involved tremendous formal experimentation while figurative and quasi-narrative elements have developed at an incremental pace. Dunham’s work is comic at times but equally lurid, often revealing an especially male psychosexual subject. These blunt pictures are often disturbing, aggressive, and anxious while also hysterically funny, blobby, and cartoony. I admire their tough and gritty beauty, their rudeness, and their faith in their own candor.
