Let us tell you more about this edition

Eight Whites, Oct 30, 2008 belongs to Sultan’s famous "Flower" series. The American artist is renowned for his retrieval of the still life tradition, where the image is deconstructed to its basic elements, resulting in works that remain both abstract and representational.

"The images... are really about the architecture in the paintings; they seem so massive and strong and permanent but nothing is permanent." — Donald Sultan

This piece is a color silkscreen; with enamel inks and tar-like texture on 4-ply museum board, which represents Sultan's iconic poppies in white, rendered against a black background. The image reveals one of the key features of the artist´s work - the material juxtaposition - the contrast of a weighty background with ethereal shapes of the flowers.
