The origin of Lena Dunahm’s raunchy nature: Meet her father, the “artist” Carroll Dunham

Now you why know Lena Dunham is so messed up and infatuated with sex as verified by her crude sex scenes in her former HBO show, Girls, and her desire to display her naked body whenever she can.

Lena Dunham’s father is Carroll Dunham, an artist. Here’s a bit about his work. From artnet:

“Carroll Dunham is a contemporary American painter. Employing a unique stylization of the human figure, Dunham’s work playfully and crudely examines painting tropes and traditions. With thick black outlines and simple imagery—a blue sky, green trees, and pink flesh—he employs cartoonish semblances of nature and sexually grotesque imagery as a foil for experimenting with color and line. Dunham’s take on painting is opposed to an authorial identity, and rather offers a complex integration of formal crafting and philosophical thought. “The area in which I tend to wander when I’m thinking about my own work, is the area of how the mind works,” he once said. “How the personality is constructed. What parts of me can be allowed freedom and what parts can’t, all of which in the end come down to questions of the soul and what the soul is.”

Born on November 5, 1949 in New Haven, CT, Dunham went on to receive a BA from Trinity College in 1972. His works can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others. Dunham lives and works between Cornwall, CT and New York, NY with his wife and fellow artist Laurie Simmons.”

  1. Simply put, Carroll Dunham looks insane.

  2. Did you notice that all of the places his “art” is displayed are funded with your tax dollars. Look it up and start letting your congresscritter know you are not happy about it.

  3. Frances Stonor Saunders’ book, “The Cultural Cold War: The CIA and the World of Arts and Letters”. Beginning after WWII, only those who offer up ‘radical’ expressions in ‘art’ or ‘literature’ were awarded grants. It’s all part of the plan to debase Christian society and unhitch it from its moorings.

  4. I suggest everyone read the following book, “The Benedict Option. A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation”.

  5. We live in a free society and because we are free we have allowed these so called DUNHAMS emancipate the children at an early age, now we exist in an open society where all is permissible and for us to turn our face the other way. We have no other choice but live among corruption. I’m sure Dunham has surpassed the limits of imagination. CENSORED no longer exists.

    • PMB . . . You are absolutely on the money! “What a filthy, rotten, disgusting, demented pervert.” How many individuals would open their own wallet, and take out sufficient money to purchase one of these filthy, vile pieces of crap? Would you proudly display this crap anywhere other than to line the garbage pail (and even then, I would not use it for that purpose, just in case one of the neighbors saw, and thought I was approving of this kind of filth! This man looks like a demented creature . . . it is no wonder that his daughter is one brick short of a load!

    This is a nasty reminder of my art school days in roughly the same era. I remember our dean of students once breaking down in tears because of what he called, “This insane asylum.”

    • TD . . . I can certainly understand when someone of talent, and civilized morals would weep at seeing garbage like this pass as “A-R-T.”

      I believe that I read in the Communist Manifesto (or whatever) that the degradation of Art was to be sought after, because it rather that edifying the soul, it sets one’s teeth on edge–we shrink inside from being such vileness. I would love to know if Mr Dunham is a communist. He certainly should not be receiving ANY PUBLIC FUNDS to foster these types of productions in the name of “Art.”

  9. It’s interesting that a no-talent hack can enjoy such prestige. I mean, you think about all the artists in the US, both trained (if a BA in art is “trained”) and untrained, and THIS guy AND his wife are both roaring successes? Sure, that makes sense.

    An up-and-comer in the literary world is a person known as iO (I kid you not). Look “him” up, and get a load of his story.

    I call BS: culture is totally manufactured, and the agenda is clear.

    • “We’re experts and we declare this to be “art”. “We’re ‘journalists’, you’re not”. They mock us every day. They steal our money to fund this filth. It’s one of their favorite things to do. Look at Sarah Silverman or any of the other comedians. The game is to insult us and get us to laugh along. It’s actually racist garbage.

  13. As time moves on, I find all this perversion deeply disturbing. Just this weekend I read where Lena claims it was her father that showed her how to use a tampon. Am I the only one upset by this?
    Clearly, just looking at the father’s art, and I use the term loosely, has a serious problem. Most people paint scenes that they observe, what the hell does this guy see?

  14. This is so perverted -these drawings come from the mind of a grown man, with the sexual obsession of a 12 year old boy. What a mockery of the human body. And he’s a terrible artist technically.
    The whole family are absolutely disgusting pigs–but actually I do not want to insult pigs.
    I recently caught her comedy act on cable (cant remember if it was netflix or hbo, it was absolutely disgusting. It has very bad reviews, but like a train wreck, I had to watch it. I wanted to see if she was really as grotesque as she seemed–and she did not disappoint.

  16. “Portnoy’s Complaint” is a reductionist novel by Philip Roth. As one reads the novel forward, the anti-hero protagonist, Alexander Portnoy, seems to be ever more reduced to something resembling a cartoon level. The saving grace of the novel, I think, is that, despite the grotesquery, it is funny.
    Andy Wahol seized upon this reductionism in his work. And Warhol was the first major artist to work in silk screen, which means, he was the first major artist that did not have to personally touch his product with his hands. (I’ve done silk screen in the past, and, technically, this can be true: One may touch the finished product of the silk screen, but one does not finger or touch the screen in the production of the work).

    With Dunham, one sees the same reductionism in his work. It’s not the primitivism that bothers me: It is the NIHILISM, and the bald HATRED of the human form, of human sexuality, on display in his work. I won’t say I see the love of a Holocaust of all of humanity in his work, but I do see an underlying hatred of life. Hardly fit for expression in art, but what can be done now?

    You know, I see the same reductionism in Lena Dunham, the product of a struggle between a hatred of the good and the resultant grotesquery that is painful and repugnant to witness. I do not see the grotesquery of cartoonist Al Capp, who was funny and satirical, or the hinting of grotesquery present in much of Woody Allen’s movies, which can be funny or humorous.
    In plain English, I see much in Jewish art that is very reflective of its worldview: For a people who consider the highlight of their Jewishness as being members of a special club or race, their culture seems sterile for the most part to me. That’s right, I said it: Judaism is a “religion” of sterility, where belief in God is not mandatory, cynicism a reliable guide and a supercilious xenophobia their standard of behavior. All things considered, a real hatred of life seems to emanate from it: A transvaluation of all values to the point of deconstruction seems to drive it. This hatred oozes forth from Chagall’s painting of the Crucifixion, in which a rabbi is seen patrolling the Cross, to make sure that the Dead Christ is not removed from it.
    E. Michael Jones sums the matter up, referring to the Book of John: Christ is the Logos. Judaism, he maintains, is, essentially and fundamentally, anti-Logos.
    I don’t see Judaism as doing its adherents any special favors.
    This is what Carroll Dunham seems to be spewing forth, to me.

    • Jesus Christ did call them the “synagogue of Satan”.

      • Yes, Dr. Eowyn, He most certainly did. But, as I’ve said before, I’ve met many wonderful Jews here in New York over the years. It seems to me that the greatest embarrassment a Jew can endure is not the Holocaust; It seems to me the greatest humiliation is to be expelled from the Synagogue. This indicates to me that Judaism, as an enterprise, is highly structured in a stratified, heirarchical form, and that the resulting network that provides for their material security keeps most of them in.
        Like Islam, Judaism really does not care about what one believes in; All of its concern is its ongoing economic vibrancy: I have heard Jews on Michael Savage’s program declare that “most Jews don’t believe in anything,” or that “most Jews don’t believe in God,” and if they believe in anything, or practice anything, it is “Tibetan Buddhism.”
        We must pray for the Jews, and this is a real challenge in the Vatican II “Church” with its ecumenism”: Many Jews are good people, but they are stuck in what is really a political ideological system, and they look to their rabbis not so much for real metaphysical truth, but for survival in the paranoid worldview that preaches that the entire world is out to exterminate them.
        Jesus DID preach against “the Synagogue of Satan,” but that, in and of itself, does not, I believe, automatically, condemn every alienated Jew that finds himself therein; After all, Sartre found himself alienated, and he ENJOYED IT (that is because, I found out, from Dr. Makow, that Sartre was a sexual criminal, but that is another matter). The reason why I am adamant on this is because, I find myself, as a victim of Vatican II, to be a victim of the same scam: Just as the Jews were scattered throughout the world by Christ’s condemnation, I find myself, a lukewarm, mediocre Catholic, to be the victim of the SAME replication of method going on here.
        And taking this beyond myself, Our Lady of Quito predicted this Apostasy, and I see the exact same thing happening to Holy Mother Church: This has been going on since the ascension of John XXIII to the Papacy in 1958. It’s still going on.
        So if Salvation is still possible to me, a lukewarm and mediocre Catholic who suffers from acedia, I maintain that the same is still possible for the individual Jew—IF he makes the break from his rabbi, from his network, from his synagogue.

        As the Grateful Dead song proclaims, it’s been “a long strange trip.” We Catholics CANNOT understand “Pope” Francis—or any other V-2 Papacy, or save the Jews—until we understand this.
        That’s what it seems to me.
