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.
