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

Here, a group of children is bundled up in hats, gloves, and jackets. This monotype features Zalopany’s characteristic mastery of light and dark, from the bright winter sunlight catching the children’s hats, to the knit texture of their gloves in shadow. The heart patterns on the children’s hats and scarves are a tender addition to this intimate portrait. In Children, bright white paper sets off Zalopany’s dimensional drawing style. The translucency of the ink is showcased by the artist’s loose, painterly brush strokes, which create rich layers of color and texture.


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.
