The work of David Batchelor (b. 1955) is largely concerned with the experience of colour in modern urban life. It typically consists of found light-industrial objects or domestic utensils -- from warehouse dollies, lightboxes or balls of electrical flex to cheap plastic bottles, toys or sunglasses. Piet Mondrians Victory Boogie Woogie (1942-1944) is about the dynamics of New York city life. Batchelor: "There is a whole world in Mondriaans paintings, even if there is just one colour, some black and some white..."
