Most widely known for his comic, hallucinatory paintings, Carroll Dunham (b.1949) is also a prolific printmaker. This survey features over 100 prints including lithographs, etchings, drypoints, linocuts, wood engravings, screen prints, digital prints and monoprints all made since 1984. An integral part of his artistic process, Dunham’s prints combine the spontaneity and drama of his paintings with the careful premeditation demanded of the medium. His imagery-—which shares the wickedly cartoony semi-abstractions of his paintings—is transformed, refined, and often intensified in his graphic work.
