About The Work

Ziggurat (Cul de Sac) continues Chris Ballantyne’s exploration of the tensions that exist between nature and man’s ever-expanding imprint on the planet. Employing a dry sense of humor and architecturally precise draftsmanship, Ballantyne delicately renders familiar images of everyday life—a neglected swimming pool, an empty parking lot, a vacant home—and juxtaposes them with often vast expanses of nature. Ballantyne says of his work, “I want to suggest that empty space or nothingness has real meaning, as do the everyday and overlooked.”
