"My first visit to Antarctica was in the Winter of 2015. I'd seen many beautiful places, but Antarctica was in a category of it's own. The towering ice radiated a sapphire blue that took my breath away, and inspired a whole series of drawings that I've been working on ever since, including Errera Channel No. 1. "
- Artist Zaria Forman on her new series Antarctica.
Zaria's solo exhibition, Antarcticaopens September 9th 2017, at Winston Wachter Fine Art in Seattle and runs through November 4th, 2017.
Zaria Forman’s most recent body of work Antarctica, was inspired by a four week residency aboard the National Geographic Explorer. The magnificent yet harsh landscape of Antarctica, where life struggles to exist, is filled with majestic monoliths of ancient ice. Today it is also a landscape in flux. As temperatures rise, glaciers melt more rapidly than they grow. Forman’s large-scale and detailed drawings are meant to make Antarctica’s beauty and critical existence visceral to the viewer. Her drawings capture moments in time in this rapidly changing ecosystem, allowing us to celebrate what is still here, and contemplate what we stand to lose.
Zaria Forman’s work is exhibited widely across the United States and is held in the collections of the Arkansas Art Museum and the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum. Her drawings have been featured by press organizations the world over and appear in the Netflix series House of Cards. Recently she was honored with a solo exhibition and lecture series at the Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE) and was a featured TED speaker at the Town Hall Theater in NYC. NASA invited Zaria to join their Operation IceBridge in Antarctica and Greenland, which she did in 2016 and 2017.
