”The massive work is both fragile and imposing as the shape of a tank is formed from translucent fabric held together by black thread. Deslaurier’s three-dimensional drawing treats a severe subject with delicacy and beauty as the hollow formation of the tank is understood in conjunction with the textile-artifact’s sheer size. It is as if the artist constructs the reality of war as something of a ghost in every person’s life.” – Design Boom review
