Donald Sultan | New Works: Poppies, Mimosas and Buttons
Meyerovich Gallery is featuring, this fall, medium to large scale works on paper by one of the leading contemporary American still life artists Donald Sultan whose works are exhibited and collected all over the world.
The exhibition at Meyerovich Gallery titled “Donald Sultan | New Works: Poppies, Mimosas and Buttons” includes his most recent works on paper. Sultan's still-lifes are studies in contrast, where organic and geometric forms intertwine creating powerfully sensual, fleshy representations of their subjects. For example, in the artwork, “Big Poppies, Sept 14, 2014 (Red)” the centers and background are black flocked and the background is then over-printed with black enamel ink. Flocking is a process that creates velvety, soft & sparkly texture. This exhibition exemplifies the various styles and techniques that the artist employs to create his dynamic artworks.
