In this new body of work, Nadia Amoroso renders visual recordings of various relic landscapes within the central Oklahoma district. These large-scale black and white charcoal drawings capture the essence of space, and the poetic beauty of such residual places, embracing areas along railway tracks, oilrigs, disaster sites, highway overpasses, and silo warehouses. Though these sites may seem banal to the common eye, a closer look reveals a character, history, structure and cultural aesthetic carefully represented in these drawings.
