Watch: Donald Sultan introduces Dark Objects

Donald Sultan introduces his latest exhibition Dark Objects: Works 1977-2019 at Huxley-Parlour Gallery. Discussing his move to New York following postgraduate studies at the Art Institute of Chicago, Sultan elaborates on the landscape of New York, and the importance of the city’s materiality to his ‘Disaster Paintings’. Understanding his work as physical labour in the spirit of industrial construction and the practice of the Abstract Expressionists, Sultan sets his series – including the seminal ‘Black Lemons’ – within their social and historical context.
