Donald Sultan Collection
Donald Sultan’s works appear simple, yet are powerful pieces that contain layers of complexity. His still life sculptures are filled with rich iconography—provocative objects, like bulbous fruits and flowers, with textures and space that seem almost understated but have a boldness that can’t be ignored. Although primarily classified as a still lifes, Sultan maintains that his works are first and foremost abstract.
The Lantern Flower Series are a fine example of the power of Sultan’s work, as they posses a feeling of strength, although the subject is a delicate flower. Sultan’s Lantern Flower sculptures make use of the artist’s love of industrial design and still life and the elegance and movement of flowers. Each piece is made of painted aluminum on a polished aluminum base.

Yellow Lantern Flowers, Sept.18, 2013 belongs to Sultan’s famous sculptural Flower series. The artist is credited for the revival of the still life tradition where the image is deconstructed to the basic elements, and thus Sultan’s work remain both abstract and representational.
Just like in his paintings, Sultan masterfully applies industrial materials to his sculptures. Yellow Lantern Flowers, Sept.18, 2013 are made from painted aluminum on polished aluminum base. The ephemeral shape of the flower is gracefully combined with the weighty aluminum manifesting the synthesis of the natural and the industrial typical to Sultan´s work. The sculpture is incised with title, date, and artist initials, it is as well stamped with edition number, publisher and artist copyright stamp on the base verso.

"Big Poppies" well represents the Sultan's emblematic artistic signature. 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. Sultan emphasizes the distinct qualities of the various elements: the surface and the support, which is then projected forward so that the viewer is conscious of its artificiality.

Sultan has revisited and reinvented the still-life with images of lemons, poppies, playing cards, fruits and flowers, and other objects. Interested in contrast, he explores such dichotomies as beauty and roughness, nature and artificiality, and realism and abstraction. His floral bouquets, fruit still lifes and landscapes fill with an impressive monumentality the space.
