Donald Baechler

b. 1956

Born Hartford, Connecticut; lives in New York, New York.

Known for his multimedia work that co-opts popular culture and often references childhood. By deliberately using an awkward line and bright colors, he taps into memory and nostalgia. During his residency at Tamarind, Baechler created Blue Flower for the Collectors Club, as well as Albuquerque Flower, and small suite of animal images, floating in a field anchored by colored squares.
