This body work relates to Batchelder's new series of drawings.
These pieces are made from electroformed copper and are super lightweight and sculptural. Batchelder applies conductive paint with a brush onto wax forms prior to electroforming them. This slow and careful process is akin to drawing with a brush on paper. Inspired by Minimalist art of the 1960s' Batchelder's work, "fields of tight, fine line work resemble interwoven swaths of fabric" have recently been compared to Agnes Martin's work by writer Chelsea Campbell.
