"The Circles series are a collection of abstractions looking at subjects within the medium of the cartoon and the comic strip. Through these drawings I put forward questions and subjects that explore the Cartoon and Comic on a socioeconomic point of view and can hopefully raise interesting topics of discussion.
The perception of the french as an unbeatable and a patriotic race of people, as opposed to modern day views and the importance of keeping tradition within Asterix the Gaul Comics. The portrayal of race throughout the time line of Tom and Jerry cartoons. Does the unity and community of Peyo’s Smurfs portray a socialist life and what was the source of it’s popularity in an overtly anti-socialist country such as the U.S.A? The carrot as an object of health and prosperity within Warner Brothers cartoons? The depiction of Indian ascetics as magical and enigmatic Gandhi-Like figures in an Asterix the Gaul Comic." - Adam Batchelor

ABOUT Adam Batchelor:
"My work is about the human relationship with its culture. Currently I like to explore a juxtaposition between pop consumer imagery and people from the real world, mostly from developing countries. I draw inspiration from consumerism, object hood and the developing world to look at how western culture can influence and out shadow other cultures." - Adam Batchelor
