David Batchelor, best known for incorporating the pure sensation of colours in the construction of sculptural installations, now has his first full-scale exhibition of drawings and paintings. Through his two-dimensional works, the development of an aesthetic investigation that is the source of Batchelor’s artistic practice and academic research can be identified in his show, Flatlands, at Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket Gallery. Always fascinated by the qualities of colour as raw materials for making art, as an artist he has used colour as a powerful tool for producing sensory systems, and as a scholar he has also written extensively about the perception of colour and its importance in art history.

The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, until 14 July 2013.
