“In the Flowers—seven paintings of cropped nudes surrounded by flowers—and The Beach—a giant canvas depicting a tree trunk, flowers, and a full-bodied nude—are the latest in a series of works by Dunham to feature nude women. It’s a sequence that can be traced back to 2008, when the female body first started appearing in his sketchpads and on his canvases.” Published on the occasion of Dunham’s first solo show at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, In the Flowers, the Beach traces the artist’s continued study of the female figure and includes an essay by George Pendle.
