The inspiration for her drawings began in her early childhood when she traveled with her family throughout several of the worlds most remote landscapes, which became the subject of her mother's fine art photography. She developed an appreciation for the beauty and vastness of the ever-changing sky and sea. she loved watching a far-off storm on the western desert plains; the monsoon rains of southern India; and the cold arctic light illuminating Greenland's waters. In her work she explore moments of transition, turbulence and tranquility in the landscape and their impact on the viewer.
In this process she is reminded of how small we are when confronted with the powerful forces of nature. The act of drawing is a meditation for her, and her hope is that the viewer can share this experience of tranquil escape when engaging the work.
At first glance, these images look like like photos of glaciers and icebergs afloat on tranquil and frigid seas. The truth is somewhat more interesting, however – they’re enormous soft pastel finger drawings by U.S. artist Zaria Forman.
