Color to Dissolve Form

Categories: Art + Graphics

David Batchelor makes installations from brightly colored found objects that are mostly material left overs of our times. What is left behind and perceived first is the color. He explains:

“When I make works from light boxes (such as Brick Lane Remix, 2003), or old plastic bottles with lights inside, I hope the illumination suspends their objecthood to some degree and makes the viewer see them a little differently – see them as colours before seeing them as objects.”

All the shapes he uses eventually serve as “vehicles for color.”


His book ” Chromophobia” offers point of views, provide questions and takes side with passion.
