Let us tell you more about this edition

Big Yellow, Sept. 12, 2014, belongs to Sultan’s famous Flower series. The artist is credited for the revival of the still life tradition where the image is deconstructed to the basic elements, thus Sultan’s work remains both abstract and representational.

"Paintings have the life of their own. You make them and they have to speak back to you." — Donald Sultan

Big Yellow, Sept. 12, 2014, is a color silkscreen with enamel inks and tar-like texture on 4-ply museum board, it represents Sultan's emblematic poppies rendered against black background. The image reveals one of the key features of Sultan’s work - the material juxtaposition- the contrast of a weighty background with ethereal shapes of the flowers. The printing technique translates the Sultan’s original paintings’ texture: linoleum, tar, flocking, plaster, tile, wood.
