Additional Information

Artist Statement:

The oil boom is reframing the North Dakota landscape, Areas of Western North Dakota that have been purposely preserved for decades are now vulnerable targets for oil companies. The image inside the oil rig was taken at Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora North Dakota. The copper used to make the print was cut into the shape of an oil rig to limit the amount of landscape that could be printed, representing the loss of untouched land due to the drilling of oil.
