Monotype on white paper. Signed by the artist, dated 1988, and annotated IA lower right in pencil.

In this black and white monotype, Zalopany has captured a duo of tumblers atop a roof, as onlookers stare in wonder. The artist is able to capture movement and shadow with fluid swaths of ink and delicately-painted details, defining sun-lit areas by removing ink with a single gesture.



The Artist

Michele Zalopany

Born in 1955 in Detroit Michigan, Michele Zalopany is a contemporary American artist best known for her large-scale watercolor and pastel paintings based on photographs found in digital picture collections, old books, and flea markets, etc. Found photographs and film screen shots that had originally served other purposes — family snapshots, police photos, real estate, travel documentation — when rendered, directly from the image, with traditional art materials, take on additional meanings, such as socio-psychological-political content.
