 Donald Sultan

1975 – Received M.F.A.from the School of the Art Institute, Chicago 

 

1973 – Received B.F.A. from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

 

Sultan, an internationally recognized artist who rose to prominence in the late 1970s as part of the “New Image” movement, is known for elevating the still-life tradition through the deconstruction of his subjects into basic forms and the use of industrial materials. His paintings characteristically employ enamel, roofing tar, aluminum, linoleum, and spackle, pushing the boundaries of the medium through techniques of gouging, sanding, and buffing to create flatness, depth, and texture. The works are made of the same materials as the building in which the viewer stands; the architecture participates in the paintings. Weighty and structured, Sultan’s paintings are simultaneously abstract and representational: while his imagery is immediately recognizable – flowers, daily objects, insignia, idle factories – the dominating, abstract forms contradict its common association with fragility.

 

Born in Asheville, North Carolina, Sultan studied at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and later received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute, Chicago. His first solo exhibition was mounted in 1977 at Artists Space in New York, and his work has since been exhibited worldwide in solo and group exhibitions, including at: the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Gotlands Konst Museum, Sweden; Institute of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Memphis Brooks Museum, Memphis; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Musée d’art Contemporain, Montreal; National Galerie, Berlin; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. His work is included in internationally renowned public and private collections, among them The Art Institute of Chicago; British Museum; Cincinnati Art Museum; Cleveland Art Museum; Dallas Museum of Fine Arts; Detroit Institute of Arts; Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, Cambridge; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; Ludwig Museum, Budapest; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Neuberger Museum at SUNY-Purchase, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Singapore Museum of Art; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tate Gallery, London; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.

Donald Sultan, es un artista reconocido internacionalmente que saltó a la fama a fines de la década de 1970 como parte del movimiento "New Image", es conocido por elevar la tradición de la naturaleza muerta a través de la deconstrucción de sus sujetos en formas básicas y el uso de materiales industriales. Sus pinturas emplean de manera característica materiales como esmalte, alquitrán para techos, aluminio, linóleo y masilla, ampliando los límites del medio a través de técnicas de ranurado, lijado y pulido para crear superficies planas, profundidad y textura. Las obras están realizadas con los mismos materiales que el edificio en el que se encuentra el espectador; la arquitectura participa en las pinturas. Pesadas y estructuradas, las pinturas de Sultan son a la vez abstractas y representativas: mientras que sus imágenes son inmediatamente reconocibles (flores, objetos cotidianos, insignias, fábricas ociosas), las formas abstractas dominantes contradicen su asociación común con la fragilidad.

 

Nacido en Asheville, Carolina del Norte, Sultan estudió en la Universidad de Carolina del Norte, Chapel Hill y luego realizó su master en Bellas Artes en el Instituto de Arte de Chicago. Su primera exposición individual se montó en 1977 en Artists Space en Nueva York, y desde entonces su trabajo se ha exhibido en todo el mundo en espacios tan prestigiosos como el Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, Cincinnati; Galería de Arte Corcoran, Washington, DC; Museo Gotlands Konst, Suecia; Instituto de Arte Contemporáneo de Tokio; Museo de Arte del Condado de Los Ángeles; Museo de Memphis Brooks, Memphis; Museo de Arte Moderno de Nueva York; Musée d'art Contemporain, Montreal; Galería Nacional, Berlín; Museo Solomon R. Guggenheim, Nueva York; y Whitney Museum of American Art, Nueva York.

 

Su obra está incluida en colecciones públicas y privadas de renombre internacional, entre ellas The Art Institute of Chicago; Museo Británico; Museo de Arte de Cincinnati; Museo de Arte de Cleveland; Museo de Bellas Artes de Dallas; Instituto de Artes de Detroit; Museo de Arte Fogg de la Universidad de Harvard, Cambridge; Museo y Jardín de Esculturas Hirshhorn, Washington, DC; Museo Ludwig, Budapest; El Museo Metropolitano de Arte, Nueva York; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Tokio; Museo de Bellas Artes de Boston; Museo de Bellas Artes de Houston; Museo de Arte Moderno de Nueva York; Galería Nacional de Australia, Canberra; Museo Neuberger en SUNY-Purchase, Nueva York; Museo de Arte Moderno de San Francisco; Museo de Arte de Singapur; El Museo Solomon R.
