When artist Zaria Forman traveled to Greenland in 2012, she saw firsthand the effects that climate change had taken on the region. In her project “Chasing the Light” she uses pastels to capture the idea of a world deep in the process of a terrifying change. Zaria Forman does some unbelievable art in the form of Icebergs.
Zaria about her project:
My mother, Rena Bass Forman, had conceived the idea for the voyage, but sadly did not live to see it through. During the months of her illness her dedication to the expedition never wavered and I promised to carry out her final journey. In Greenland, I scattered her ashes amongst crackling ice diamonds, on the towering peak of one of earth’s oldest stones and under the green glow of northern lights. She is now a part of the landscape she loved so much. I am deeply grateful for the team of talented artists and scholars and the Wanderbird captains and crew for helping me carry out her wishes and realize her dream.
