Description

Member of the 1980s East Village art scene, Donald Baechler offers a “grown-up” perspective on what is seen as typically childhood imagery. Baechler takes recognizably nostalgic shapes and forms and pokes fun at the purposefully cliché motifs while maintaining a focus on line, shape, color, and composition. Here, Baechler takes the iconic image of a rose presented in a cartoonish manner from his series ‘Six Roses.’

About Donald Baechler

Donald Baechler (American, b. 1956) is a figurative artist who rose to prominence in New York City during the 1980s. Influenced by his time spent in Germany alongside the burgeoning Neue Wilde scene, his Neo-expressive style is characterized by bold silhouettes over a textured collage background. Though his work overwhelmingly emphasizes line, form, and balance over narrative, Baechler commonly seeks to convey a universal feeling of memory by depicting a single recognizable object, such as a flower or vase. His works have been exhibited internationally and can be found within the permanent collections of the Guggenheim, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, among others.
