David Batchelor (b. 1955, Dundee) is best known for his vividly coloured sculptural installations of illuminated lightboxes, industrial dollies, and other found objects. These three-dimensional works perhaps belie the fact that the root of his interest is and always has been in drawing, painting, abstraction and the monochrome—preoccupations that are best charted in his immensely varied two-dimensional work. This exhibition is the first in-depth presentation of David Batchelor’s drawings and paintings.
Having originally studied painting, Batchelor has, over the last twenty years, made colour his leitmotif.
