In this series, Sultan returns to the poppy as a subject and references his early paintings made from tar. The thickly printed flocked surface of the print interspersed with blood red enamel creates a beautiful work that verges on abstraction, illustrating why Sultan is considered the foremost contemporary painter of the still life.

Born in 1951 in Asheville, North Carolina, Donald Sultan rose to prominence in the 1980's as a painter and draftsman of subjects such as lemons and flowers. He is best known for his rich use of black, actually tar in many of his paintings, and his work is voluminous and varied, manifesting itself in the media of paint, printing, and sculpting.

Sultan received his BFA from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and his MFA from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. He moved to New York in 1975, where he lives and works.
