Quotes by David Batchelor - (5 quotes)

David Batchelor - From the Colour category:

Chromophobia is perhaps only chromophilia without the colour. (David Batchelor)

David Batchelor - From the Colour category:

Colour is uncontainable. It effortlessly reveals the limits of language and evades our best attempts to impose a rational order on it... To work with colour is to become acutely aware of the insufficiency of language and theory – which is both disturbing and pleasurable. (David Batchelor)

David Batchelor - From the Form category:

I often use colour to attack form, to break it down a little or begin to dissolve it. But I am not at all interested in 'pure' colour or in colour as a transcendental presence... So if I use colours to begin to dissolve forms, I also use forms to prevent colours becoming entirely detached from their everyday existence. (David Batchelor)

David Batchelor - From the Ideas category:

Certain materials suggest ideas and ways of working. (David Batchelor)

David Batchelor - From the Materials category:

The materials I use are absolutely essential to the work I make. (David Batchelor)
