Dunham @ Gladstone

I might just be feeling sentimental but after reading this review on Caroll Dunham I have been instantly taken back to senior seminar with Joseph Bernard, who introduced me to his vulgar, painterly, comic, descriptive, humorous, and sickening works that are cross between genitalia forms and pop symbols that scrape against a barren landscape. I remember for the first time liking these even though they were so perverted and a different kind of painting that broke the rules - they could be very cute and at the same time so wrong. I liked the dichotomy of surface treatment and visual content.

Didn't Lemberg show Dunham when they were in Birmingham?
