2 days ago
Zaria Forman's large-scale compositions of melting glaciers, icebergs floating in glassy water and waves cresting with foam explore moments of transition, turbulence and tranquility. Zaria's drawings convey the urgency of climate change by connecting people to the beauty of remote landscapes. Her works have appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian Magazine, the Wall Street Journal and The Huffington Post. Her drawings have also been used in the set design for the Netflix TV series House of Cards. Her most recent achievements include participation in Banksy’s Dismaland (Aug-Sep 2015), a solo exhibition at Winston Wächter Fine Art in New York City (Sep-Oct 2015), and a four week art residency in Antarctica aboard the National Geographic Explorer (Nov-Dec 2015). Her next solo show is at Winston Wächter Fine Art, Seattle, WA, opening Sept 7th, 2017. In this episode, Zaria discusses: -Some of her earliest influences, especially her mother, Rena Bass Forman. -How a trip to Greenland opened up her eyes and heart to the topic of climate change. -Why she chooses to draw on such a large scale. -Why she uses her hands instead of tools. -The difficulty that she sometimes has in choosing which reference to go forward with, knowing how many hours she will be devoting to the piece. -How she attempts to give the viewer the experience of being where she was, and why a simple photograph isn’t enough of a reference. -Her attempt to get people to fall in love with the landscapes, because it is that emotional connection that spurs people into action. -Working with NASA’s Operation IceBridge and the new perspectives she was able to get as a result. -The fear that often sets in before starting a new large piece. -Her new body of work and how she is moving in a more abstract direction. -Her experience of being a part of Banksy’s “Dismaland.” -Details about her upcoming show. Zaria's Final Push will inspire you to have a personal connection with your work, because that it what speaks to your audience the best. Quotes:

Do creative types need daily inspiration?
My first thought was- maybe not. I am a painter, my husband is a writer. We both have full time jobs, and was interested to see what's new with this new podcast. Curiously enough, the good mix of guests so far has made me wonder... do we need daily inspiration? I still think not, but this is a podcast I would like to catch up with every once in a while to see what the guests have to share.
