CARROLL DUNHAM: WRESTLERS
This catalogue documents four interconnected bodies of work: A Wrestling Place series—depicting two Herculean figures mid-tussle against a barren panorama; Self-Examination paintings—a wrestler’s intimately folded body represented within a tensely cropped picture plane; the Wrestler suite—individual portraits of the brawling protagonists standing in profile, facing away from the viewer and exposing scuffed, bruised backs against otherworldly blue backdrops; and The Golden Age—scenes rendered in pencil on gessoed linen.
With a new essay by Alexi Worth, this catalogue was published in connection with a solo exhibition at Blum & Poe, Los Angeles, April 28—June 17, 2017.
