Mary Ryan Gallery is pleased to publish this new edition by Donald Sultan. A painter, sculptor and printmaker who rose to prominence in the late 1970s as part of the “New Image” movement, Sultan infuses the still life tradition with his particular contemporary sensibility: reducing the subject to its basic form, using new materials and processes, flattening pictorial space and challenging preconceived notions of the subject.

In Blue Poppies 2018, Sultan revisits his iconic image of the poppy flower, inspired by Remembrance Day poppies worn on lapels or hung as wreaths to honor soldiers lost in World War I. In eleven layers of ink with velvety black flocking, Sultan flattens the poppy into its essential form with these enlarged and emboldened blooms.

Blue Poppies 2018 is a companion print to Red Poppies, March 21, 2012 and Yellow Poppies, September 12, 2013, also published by Mary Ryan Gallery.
