interview by Alex
Hawgood/the Insider

Donald Baechler has amassed a great inventory of worldly images. Recorded on slides and collected in the archives of his enormous Lower Manhattan studio, they are the sources for many of the compelling images in his paintings. The cast of characters, which also includes himself, come from every source imaginable, and are stamped, silk-screened, projected, drawn, painted, printed or collaged onto surfaces. Then the process begins: underpainting, overpainting, canceling, adding, subtracting, editing until the final work emerges. Baechler was born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1956 and came of age as a painter in the early 1980s when he began exhibiting internationally. His work is in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the Centre George Pompidou in Paris.

**critics have stated that Donald Baechler's work "places him in the painterly tribe of Twombly, Ryman, Rauschenberg and Schwitters."

Could be the kid in me; do you admire a Baechler, the man or the art?

You are so funny! I love the compatibility list. Totally made me smile today!!

Jacqueline said...

I agree Christy....so funny
I'm ' of a similar age !!!!!', and you can tell by his paintings that he is a child of the 60's.
Another great post Deb. I'm either going to go back to college to help me do better posts or give up blogging altogether. You are too good. !!!!!

Averill said...

He definitely reminds of Rauschenberg -- not quite to my taste, but I can definitely appreciate the talent (and his use of color!).

Duchess of Tea said...

Darling I just dropped by to see how you were doing? Nice post.

I'm still laughing at your TOTAL compatibility with Donald. Too funny ... who knew you loved to eat .... and so does HE! It was meant to be.

Alicia said...

You forgot sense of sock humor....

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Great compatibility!!!! I am a child of the 60's and am thinking he has a fountain of youth stashed away somewhere. I agree with Jackie.. i need to go forth and educate myself for this blogging gig. Great post x Julie

Kellie Collis said...

Gorgeous art!! x

Dionne said...

I love the flower ones - wow his process is intense! Lots of layering!

I love Whole Foods too, that and Central Market are my little bits of Heaven.

And I love the sound of your Recession Party! That is such an awesome idea! I love the details like the centerpieces and what they had to wear. How fun!

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

I do love his flower paintings. Perfect for a country house, don't you think? And it's just stunning how much you two have in common!!!:)

The Haute-Shopper said...

Oh, you two are definitely compatible! Him and me on the other hand, wouldn't work out (I don't have a back yard). He actually looks quite young for his age (as you do too I'm sure). I've seen his pieces in a few exhibits and was always fascinated by the technique he used. Great post, thanks for sharing!

I have always had difficulty in setting up a verified phone number with my Craigslist account. I have finally found a service that solves this problem.
They sell [url=http://www.craigslistpva.com/]Craigslist Phone Verified Accounts[/url] at the cheapest prices I have ever seen. My experience with them has been exceptional and I highly recommend their service!
