Catalogue Note

"The mounds are abstract but they also seem sentient, as if they had personalities. They bring the village gods of India—bright colored lumps with huge eyes—to mind, but most of all they refer back to Philip Guston's monumental, thickly painted heads from the 70's. In fact, the qualities that defined Guston's work—an appetite for the grotesque blended with keen sensitivity to the processes of painting—also apply to Mr. Dunham's new paintings. He couldn't have picked a better model, and he's doing it proud." Holland Cotter "Art In Review," New York Times, 5 March 1993
