This biography from the Archives of AskART:
With studios in Chelsea, New York, and Salisbury, Connecticut, Carroll Dunham creates raucous acrylic paintings with additives that he describes as a "kind of high-wire act of the id and ego".  Many of his paintings are full of humorous figures with disconnected body parts.

He is a regular exhibitor at Whitney Biennials, and his work is in numerous prestigious museums including the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the Art Institute of Chicago.

He was born in Old Lyme, Connecticut to parents who ran a real-estate business.  He became a studio art major at Trinity College, and his exposure to the New York art world came from regular college field trips into the city.  He interned there one summer for Dorothea Rockburn and from her learned studio skills.  He worked for seven years as a lay-out artist for Time magazine, and then by age 30 settled into doing his own art work, which at the beginning was working with floating shapes and then later added texture.  He also did figurative work.

He credits older artists Mel Bochner and Barry LeVa as helping him find his own direction.  Dunham also became a committed art teacher and works with students in the graduate program at Columbia University.

He is married to pop-photographer Laurie Simmons, and they have two daughters and spend summers at their country retreat in Salisbury, Connecticut.  He prefers the medium of acrylic paint and textural additives such as styrofoam, asphalt and crushed glass.
