David Batchelor


The artwork and writings of David Batchelor investigate the properties of color and how it operates outside of the functional realm, becoming a unique phenomenon all on its own. The artist is also interested in the symbolic meaning attached to color and how it affects those in its presence. Batchelor’s work often takes form as sculpture, using brilliant colors with fluorescent light, neon and plastics shown through light boxes and shelving but is also known to exist in drawings, photographic series and even large-scale public works. The Scottland-born artist has exhibited recently with the Wilkinson Gallery, Gloucester Road Underground Station in London and Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, UK. Batchelor is listed as a Saatchi Gallery artist and has participated in group shows at Galerie Leme in Sao Paulo, curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, and “Extreme Abstraction” at the Albright Knox in Buffalo, N.Y.
