Donald Sultan | Red Poppies, 2012 | 75 Limited edition impression | 44” x 30”
Donald Sultan was the first artist to create a unique print for the Knight Masterworks Print Collection. His first linoleum paintings of the 1970s were inspired by the unconventional “found objects” used in the Arte Povera modern art movement in Europe and by installation artists in New York. Solo exhibits of his work have appeared in museums and galleries from The Whitney, the Guggenheim and The Met in New York to Tate Modern in London and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo. Sultan’s textured works appear frequently with other renowned pop contemporaries, such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Jim Dine and Keith Haring.
“My visit to the Adrienne Arsht Center served as a source of inspiration to create a work that incorporated my use of imagery as a symbolic reflection of the Center. The two large red poppies are connected to one another, much like the two large halls that make up the Arsht Center. The vertical white lines reference the bold building elements within the venues and also serve to reflect the architectural airiness of the building itself." –Donald Sultan
