Donald Sultan
Mimosa, September 29, 2021.
Silkscreen with enamel inks and flocking on rising 4-ply museum board.
Titled, dated, and initialed by the artist, left side; and numbered lower right.

Inspired by a gift of mimosa blossoms he received from a friend in the South of France, Donald Sultan began using the structure of the mimosa plant to explore the space between abstraction and representation, the organic and the industrial, and the history of modern art. The mimosa plant is a delicate and ephemeral thing with soft, feathery flowers that quickly wilt. Sultan was drawn to the plant’s fragility and ability to evoke beauty and decay. He began to use the mimosa as a subject in his paintings, prints, and sculptures, and he explored the ways in which the plant could be used to represent both the natural world and the man-made world.
