Donald Baechler

b. 1956 in Hartford, Connecticut; lives in New York, New York

Donald Baechler is an American artist who came of age during, and figured prominently in, the Neo-Expressionist and Pop Art movements of the 1980s. Using silhouettes of flowers, birds, and ice cream cones as shapes for “pure painting,” his work conveys a feeling of memory without giving in to illustration. During his residency at Tamarind, Baechler created Blue Flower for the Collectors Club, as well as Albuquerque Flower, and a small suite of animal images.

Baechler’s works are held in the collections of the Goetz Collection in Munich, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others.
