Large scale pastel drawings that document Earth’s shifting landscape and the effects of progressive climate change.
Inspired by her childhood travels, Brooklyn-based Zaria Forman has taken recent trips to places like the NW coast of Greenland- retracing the 1869 journey of American painter William Bradford and documenting the rapidly changing arctic landscape- and Maldives, the lowest-lying country in the world, and arguably the most vulnerable to rising sea levels.
