About the Work

About Group Portrait

In this photograph, Baechler utilizes new media, a Polaroid application on an iPhone, to create pieces that reflect his signature affinity for adopting childhood objects—in this case plastic dolls—to create work that is both technically brilliant and uncannily familiar.

An avid collector of visual imagery, Donald Baechler files away representations of maps, toys, upheld thumbs, and playing cards to later source for his compositions. With stylistic references to modernist masters and Pop Art added to these doses of pop culture, Baechler is celebrated for his works that overflow with the joy and idealism of an adult who hasn't quite forgotten the innocence of childhood.

Baechler was first represented by Tony Shafrazi, a New York art dealer who became famous for discovering Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Kenny Scharf in the 1980s. Considered to be one of the most influential artists to emerge from Shafrazi's stable, Baechler is the subject of numerous reviews, solo exhibitions, and critical essays, and has had his work collected by important figures in the art world, such as Eli Broad and Peter Brant.Read Less
