Monotype on white paper. Signed by the artist, dated 1990, and annotated A lower right in pencil.

This large-scale, colorful ocean landscape monotype gives the viewer a hidden vantage point: through the dark silhouette of tangled vines can be seen a placid, turquoise sea lapping against the golden orange shores of an island or outcropping. Zalopany’s painterly strokes of ink mimic light and dark: in translucent, soft swaths of blue that emulate crystal clear tropical waters, and with lacy layers of dark brown, conveying the cool respite of shade.


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.
