Michele Zalopany
Flowers I: Large black white large abstract floral still life with white flowers

1988

US$4,000

About

Large scale black and white stunning abstracted floral still life with sweeping brushstrokes and draped cloth. Lush and painterly composition for minimalist, contemporary and modern interiors. White flowers spill from a crystal vase with pools of watercolor-like ink. Paper 31 x 46 in. / 80 x 117 cm. 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. 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. She exhibited in the 1989 Whitney Biennial and her work is included in more than 25 institutions including the Museum of Fine Art, Boston; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Yokohama Museum, Japan; Royal College of Art, London.
