This black and white charcoal and pastel painting features a Burmese temple landscape. Rising from clouds of gnarled trees, the temple’s triangular shape thins to a pointed dome, with smaller turrets rising around each thinly striated layer of the structure. Zalopany expertly harnesses the natural texture of charcoal to define the rough underbrush, while she blends pastel to a smooth expanse of sky, which seems to cast hazy light over this ethereal scene.

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.
