In her pastel drawing series, THE MALDIVES, Forman explores the Maldives, whose existence is strongly endangered by the rising sea levels caused by climate change. >>

“Continuing the story of polar melt, a significant contributing factor to rising seas, I followed the meltwater from the Arctic to the Equator. I spent September 2013 in the Maldives, the lowest and flattest country in the world, collecting images and inspiration to create a body of work celebrating and representing a nation that could be entirely underwater within this century.” (Zaria Forman) >>
