Michele Zalopany "The Fountain" (1984)
A monumental sized work of pastel and charcoal on paper by Michele Zalopany (b. 1955) entitled "The Fountain". Zalopany employs a photorealist technique to depict specific manmade locations as well as landscapes. Through her labor-intensive pastels, Zalopany employs realism to depict fictitious scenes, bearing witness to the disintegration of what was once the fulcrum of the American economy in Detroit.
Zalopany's notable exhibition history includes shows at Gagosian Gallery, Leo Castelli Gallery, P.P.O.W. Gallery and the Esso Gallery. Zalopany's work is found in numerous private and public collections such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, MOMA, National Gallery of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Carnegie Museum of American Art.
