Created through processes of addition and subtraction, these works demonstrate a painting practice that combines intellectual rigour with an incredible sensitivity to the artist’s chosen medium. This solo exhibition presents a number of large Exposed Paintings that feature the colour violet.

David Batchelor – Whitechapel Gallery
Monochrome Archive, 1997-2015
Whitechapel Gallery, London
23 December 2014 – 3 May 2015
For nearly 20 years David Batchelor has been photographing his series of Found Monochromes – white rectangles and squares encountered on walks through cities from London to São Paulo. While he started looking at how abstraction is embedded in the urban fabric, the series has grown into a far more personal project: a psychogeographical map of each city he visits. All 500 images have been collected together for the first time and a book to accompany the presentation will soon be available to order from Ingleby Gallery.

Ruth Ewan – Camden Arts Centre
Back to The Fields
Camden Art Centre, London
30 January – 29 March 2015
Ruth Ewan’s installation at Camden Art Centre brings to life The French Republican Calendar – which briefly replaced the Gregorian calendar following the French Revolution. Each plant, animal and tool denoting the days of the Republican year is represented. The artist’s concern with concealed histories and ‘failed utopianism’ is continued through her ongoing project Jukebox of People Trying to Change the World, which has also been installed for public use.
Ewan will be in conversation with Chris Fite-Wassilak, 4 February. For more information on this exhibition and events booking visit the Camden Art Centre website here.
