Paintings and Sculptures Carroll Dunham - Paintings and Sculptures
This new monograph, accompanying the exhibition of the American artist Carroll Dunham in the Millesgården Museum (Sweden), provides an overview of his paintings and sculptures dating from 2004 to 2008. The exhibition and book expose connections between the topics and his thematic development in a variety of media.
Since the 1970s, Carroll Dunham (born in 1949 in Connecticut) has developed a formal mastery of line, texture, and color to continually engage with new and recurring modes of art making. Drawing on the art historical canon as well as on pop culture, he revisits enduring themes that comprise our existence while simultaneously exploring the formal attributes of painting. Carroll Dunham has shown at international institutions including National Museum, Oslo; Kunsthalle Düsseldorf; Sprengel Museum, Hannover; Denver Art Museum, Denver; Museum Ludwig, Cologne; Millesgarden, Stockholm; Drammens Museum, Drammen, Norway; a mid-career retrospective was held at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, in 2002.
