Brenda Zappitell’s monotypes featured at SCOPE Miami Beach

By | Art Fair, Brenda Zappitell, Monotypes | No Comments

Brenda Zappitell‘s “Bloom” monotypes, published by Manneken Press, are among the works featured by  Whitewall Contemporary in their booth at SCOPE Miami Beach this week.

Whitewall Contemporary showcases their all-female roster of artists, with painted aluminum sculptures by Jane Manus, fabric wall works by Jen Pack, and additional paintings by Brenda Zappitell, in the first art fair outing for this new Delray Beach, FL-based gallery, in booth C09.

During her visit to Manneken Press in February 2017, Brenda Zappitell created twenty seven monotypes. This was the first foray into printmaking for Zappitell, a painter known for her use of exuberant colors and vigorous brushwork. Synthesizing her observations of nature, the concept of Mindfulness or awareness of being in the present moment, and life experiences with aspects of automatism and action painting, Zappitell forms a hybrid abstraction for the 21st Century. The entire series of monotypes can be viewed at Manneken Press or on our Artsy page.
