"Reversal Poppies-Aqua And Black” by Donald Sultan
Although his paintings fit into the criteria of a still life, Sultan describes his paintings as abstract. Sultan’s large compositions of huge pieces of fruit, flowers, dominoes and other objects, set against the stark, unsettling tar-black, eight-foot square background, dominate the viewer. Sultan’s work incorporates basic geometric and organic forms with a formal purity that is both subtle and monumental. His forms make powerful statements. His images are weighty, with equal emphasis on both negative and positive space. Sultan describes his work as “heavy structure, holding fragile meaning” with the ability to “turn you off and turn you on at the same time.” Sultan’s still life paintings have been described as studies in contrast. His powerfully sensual, fleshy object representations are rendered through a labor-intensive and unique method.
