Monotype on white Arches BFK Rives paper. Signed by the artist, annotated “IE”, and dated 1988 lower center in pencil.

In this black and white monotype, Zalopany’s characteristic large-scale realism gives way to a gestural, abstracted style. Painterly swaths of black underlie fluid pools of ink, defining flowers, a vase, and a rectangular form on the side of a table. Zalopany effaces the pigment to delineate edges and enhance the sweeping quality of this composition.


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.
