Monotype on heavyweight off-white paper. Signed by the artist and dated 1989 lower right in pencil. Annotated “G” verso upper left.

This large-scale landscape pictures a flowing river flanked by grassy banks. A small path runs parallel to the river, and behind it, a rocky bluff topped by shrubs and trees. Dramatic clouds sweep across the top of the composition, meeting the landscape along a faraway, flat horizon. The translucency of the ink is showcased by the artist’s loose, painterly brush strokes and gestural highlights, which create rich layers of 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.
