For our latest Art Focus feature, we have for you the Brooklyn-based Zaria Forman and her work exploring climate change. Inspired by her childhood travels, she has taken recent trips to places like the northwest coast of Greenland, retracing the 1869 journey of American painter William Bradford, then using this experience to paint the rapidly diminishing arctic landscape (seen above). Her newest series (some seen below) was started after traveling to the Maldives, the other end of the equation if you will, one of the places in the world most vulnerable to the rising seas. For those interested, you can see her work in person in Seattle at the Winston Wachter Fine Art in June. Via Colossal. Discuss Zaria Forman here.
