Embody VI

2017

About the Item

Brenda Zappitell is a painter known for her use of exuberant colors and vigorous brushwork. Zappitell synthesizes 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 to form a hybrid abstraction for the 21st Century. "Embody VI" is one of a group of monotypes Zappitell made at Manneken Press in 2017. It is printed on Arches Cover paper. The artist's signature, title and date are in pencil along the lower right margin. The Manneken Press blindstamp is impressed into the lower left margin. The artist began each print with a plate rolled with a uniform color ground of ink. She established initial forms by making intuitive marks with silver ink, which functioned as a neutral tone, and further developed the image with additional colors and gestures. Many of the prints were complete only after multiple passes through the press, creating a layered richness of color. The “ghost image” left on the plate was often utilized in subsequent impressions. Metallic particles added to certain inks impart a shimmer to the finished works. Brenda Zappitell is a contemporary abstract expressionist artist. Her non-objective work is influenced by nature, intuition and her own life experiences. With a background in social work and law, she is mostly self-taught as an artist. Zappitell exhibits regularly in the United States, and her work can be found in many public and private collections, including St. Regis Hotel, NYC; Boca Raton Museum Of Art; MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston; and The University Of North Texas.
