Brooklyn-based artist Zaria Forman paints ultra realistic landscapes of Greenland and its icy waters, inspired by her travels to the worlds most remote landscapes, which became the subject of her mother's fine art photography. “I developed an appreciation for the beauty and vastness of the ever-changing sky and sea. I 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,” she said.

“When I travel, I take thousands of photographs and make small sketches. Once I am back in the studio, I draw from my memory of the experience, as well as the photographs to create large scale compositions. I add layers of color onto the paper, smudging everything with my fingers and hand,” the artist said to Needsupply.com.
