Ed Bats (b. 1990, South Africa) employs painting, collage, sculpture and installation to explore composition, colour and formalist ideals. Bats’ focus within his practice is heavily based on the concept of reviving found materials and objects and reinterpreting them using a minimalist and abstract aesthetic. At the Auckland Art Fair 2018, Ed Bats presents five new paintings. Each work is finished with a natural wood frame that sits level with the board.
