Smoke Rings

David Roston, LSA Class of 2010

Inspired by Smoke Rings, Donald Sultan, 2006/1.159A-D

When I first saw Donald Sultan’s Smoke Rings I was not drawn to it - I despised it. But, after a telephone interview with Mr. Sultan and viewing more of his work, I came to appreciate his approach and method of painting. I eventually used our actual telephone interview as the audio track for my piece. Creating the documentary was a long process, one that taught me how to formally conduct an interview, experiment with digital video, and edit for educative documentary purposes, thus leaving an impact on the viewer. I am very grateful for the help of Mr. Sultan and his office assistant Beth. The time and effort they gave to me – a student, allowed me to produce a documentary film that has won an award. I am extremely excited that people will able to view my documentary in the DialogTable at the UMMA.
