Donald Sultan, tar and latex on hardboard, 1988

The American artist Donald Sultan creates gloomy works and they scatter a hint of chaos. His contemporary iconographic inflated flowers and fruits are captured in the artificial soot of a post-industrial society.

Sultan sprinkles his work with thick tar, indicating the derailment of a time. His monumental ‘Chinese Railroad’ belongs to the ‘landscapes of disasters’, where the artist uses the colours that warn for the toxic poison.
