Donald Sultan, Yellow Mimosa

I really dig this Yellow Mimosa silkscreen by Donald Sultan. I love the yellow. His paintings are called still-lifes, rather than abstracts, because you can tell the objects they are representing. He usually uses industrial objects to every day subjects. I think they are fabulous. Very lively and vivid.

“The series speaks to the impermanence of all things. The largest cities, the biggest structures, the most powerful empires—everything dies,…Man is inherently self-destructive, and whatever is built will eventually be destroyed.”

He was actually born in NC, but moved to NYC.
