David Batchelor

For nearly two decades David Batchelor has been photographing found white monochrome panels of posters, signs, and timetables in London and other national and international cities including Glasgow, Berlin, Stockholm, Madrid, New York, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Hong Kong and Shanghai, among others. The resulting series of 500 images of white monochromes have been presented in a number of different forms since he began making them in the 1990’s, appearing as photographic prints, 35mm slide projections, digital projections and also in book form. His work is concerned, above all things, with color and sheer delight in the myriad brilliant hues of the urban environment, underlined by a critical concern with how we see and respond to color in this advanced technological age. Batchelor has participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions internationally, including Whitechapel Gallery, London, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Lima, Lima, Peru, Tate Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
