Review: Flatlands

David Batchelor

“As you move around the imperfect spheres suspended from the ceiling, they merge, the colour interacts and the eye focuses on a swatch of colour before its attention is caught by another slowly spinning object. The aim of the work is optical, the phenomenology and act of looking is brought into focus as we observe the effects of colour on our ways of seeing.”
