ART // Zaria Forman

... a contemplation of water, exploring the duality of the life-giving and destructive ocean.

September 10th - October 17th, 2015

Winston Wächter Fine Art, New York, is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with artist, Zaria Forman. Featuring intricate pastel drawings of ice and water in its various, shifting states, SLIP presents a meditation on the role of climate change on Earth’s most common element.

These stunning, large-scale drawings made from photographs of polar and tropical lands combine sublime romanticism, social consciousness, and modern abstraction. Forman documented the melting icebergs in Greenland, as well as the rising sea levels that threaten the island nation of the Maldives. Other drawings feature glaciers of Antarctica and beaches of Hawaii. With these works, Forman not only gives visual access to far-off places, but also renders the concept of climate change visually understandable and emotionally compelling. Avoiding any heavy-handed moralism, Forman instead suggests a contemplation of water, exploring the duality of the life-giving and destructive ocean. More

ART // Simon Butterworth's Blue Salt Fields

steve-backs-blue-salt-fields-coast-by-coast-1

Simon Butterworth shot these blue salt fields in the north of Australia. They are otherworldly and completely hypnotic. It's what I think the world would look like if it totally froze over, that, or close-ups of a really beautiful stain glass window.  His series has been shortlisted for the 2015 Sony World Photographic Awards Professional Landscape category.
