Visually the work is balanced, symmetrical, resolved. Ballard brings this same steadiness to the tumultuous topics at hand: war and faith, patriotism and disillusion. Her tone is neither anarchic nor propagandist. It apologizes not for its boldness, yet refrains from blind accusations concerning current political conflicts. Instead it offers us a place of solace in which to quiet the discord.
