DAVID BATCHELOR MINIMALISM PDF

A seven meter stack of colored light boxes on a tall steel rack stretches from floor to roof beams. A cascade of black electrical cords falls down the back. Batchelor reconstructs the urban clutter of lighted signs into a modern day totem pole with an unfussy, ad-hoc functionalism. As in his tower, the mechanism that produces the light effect is obvious. Less mystical than the light art of James Turrell, whose effects are made to appear as if by magic, more down to earth than the techno-fetishist minimalism of Dan Flavin, Batchelor uses found light boxes from old signs, relishing the grimy mechanisms behind the pretty lights, playing one off the other in a street smart, pop-art light show.

The history of painted squares in Western art appears to be approximately as follows. A breakthrough, as now Malevich dispenses with the frankly unnecessary other colour. Okay, where do I stash my clothes? Note : must reread Alan W Watts.

This was indeed a mystical holy grail for avant-gardists in the 20th century, to try and remove themselves from being hi-jacked by the filth of commerce, the loud brutality of politics and the horror of psychology. This kind of quest for purity is religious and you can see it most clearly in Mark Rothko. Actually Ad Reinhardt got stuck in his own metaphysical corner because he declared his monochrome to the the ultimate picture and then proceeded to paint nothing else.

By the canvasses were 6 feet by 5 feet. In YK exhibited eleven identical monochromes. All of the paintings were priced differently. One art critic wrote that RR presents his white painting "with such ardor that the coolest of cool paintings begins to emit an unexpected warmth, its pervasive white so nuanced that monochromy appears imperceptibly to break up into a rainbow array of chromatics". It was clear and calm. I like it a lot.

Visit How to get here Accessibility David Batchelor 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. Having originally studied painting, Batchelor has, over the last 20 years, made colour his leitmotif. Not the colour found in nature, but the synthetic colour of the illuminated street sign and lurid glare of the nocturnal metropolis. The exhibition presented drawings and paintings created over the previous two decades, including the most recent October series and preparatory drawings for sculpture, presented alongside the large-scale, kaleidoscopic installation, Disco Mecanique
