Batchelor is known predominantly for his bold sculpture. The Colour Chart series explores the core of his practice - vivid, unadulterated colour - and investigates the line between two and three dimensional work. This is a painting, yet the highly textured surface gives it the tactility of sculpture; a sense heightened by the ‘plinth’ on which the object sits.
To create these works, Batchelor pours gloss paint directly from the tin onto thin aluminium sheets, allowing it to find its own form. The paint takes up to six months to dry, creating these textural, almost lunar, surfaces.
