Concerned primarily with color and with the way we see and respond to different hues in the digital age, David Batchelor makes sculptural installations out of found objects. Mining cheap stores, markets, and city streets, Batchelor accumulates mass-produced items, disused domestic objects, and scrap industrial materials—including lightboxes, neon tubing, and plastics—which he repurposes to create colorful, often luminous, structures and forms. “If I use colors to begin to dissolve forms, I also use forms to prevent colors becoming entirely detached from their everyday existence,” he has said. Batchelor is also a writer and has written extensively on color theories, including a book, Chromophobia, which argues that a fear of corruption or contamination through color pervades Western cultural and intellectual thought.
