Zaria Forman is known for her large-format pastel drawings that investigate the excellence of nature. Specifically, her enthusiasm for ice sheet formations—and their vanishing from Earth—have driven her to investigate the absolute most far off territories of the globe. For her upcoming exhibition in Seattle, she’s honed in on one special glacier located in Patagonia—the Perito Moreno Glacier.
Her photorealistic drawings, which depend on photographs and recordings she takes in the field, are an obvious token of what we need to lose. By driving herself to search out these landscapes and document them for people in general, Forman does her part in making a bigger attention to our evolving condition.
