David Batchelor is best known for his vividly coloured sculptural installations of illuminated lightboxes, industrial dollies, and other found objects. He has, however, always been interested primarily in drawing, painting, abstraction and the monochrome. These are preoccupations that are best charted in the immensely varied two-dimensional work that is the subject of this publication, which represents a first considered attempt to analyse Batchelor's graphic register by reflecting critically on his use of surface, painting, drawing, and colour. Lavishly illustrated, it contains new writing by renowned international writer and curator Rudi Fuchs.
