Repetition Is A Pleasure II 2011. The rendering of light and atmosphere through brushwork and coloristic nuance-- where flesh is modeled in shifting pinks -- recalls practices of 19th century Impressionism. But unlike the impressionist or other artists working in traditions concerned with problems of perception and representation, Zito sees the inherent multiplicity of reality as the means through which universal communication can be bridged. And with their psychological components and modern pathos, her works are defiantly of the contemporary moment.
