Donald Sultan: The Disaster Paintings

Thu 9/29 - Fri 12/23

A critically important series in the oeuvre of American painter, sculptor, and printmaker Donald Sultan, The Disaster Paintings were created between 1984 and 1990. Painted on a monumental scale (the majority of the pieces in this series measure 8’ x 8’), these eleven signature works feature imposing, man-made structures whose industrial qualities are reinforced by their media and supports: latex and tar on Masonite tiles. The resulting images evoke a sense of robustness and strength, which is undercut by the catastrophes they depict. Sultan’s powerful images of fire, accidents, and other disasters—both natural and man-made—dare viewers to forget that calamities and adversity are woven into the very fabric of our existence and that permanence is just an illusion. Donald Sultan: The Disaster Paintings is organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Image: Donald Sultan, Polish Landscape II Jan 5, 1990 (Auschwitz), 1990.

PriceAdmission $12.50. Complimentary for Lowe members, UM students, faculty and staff.
