american artist donald baechler [1956] is part of a generation with quite a few legendary contemporaries, but unlike most of them, he's still quite productive, creating works with a surprisingly youthful feel. the artist receive formal training at new york city's prestigious cooper union and the equally renowned städelschule in frankfurt. baechler is to have a solo exhibition at amsterdam's reflex gallery, opening at its canal district venue on fri – sep 16. the artist's ongoing exploration of characters and topics from his youth continues to contribute to the signature style he's developed, and that'll also be evident in the works on display. all new works, the range of colourful canvases – mind you, it'll be baechler's first ever show in the netherlands – depict a motley collection of seemingly random objects, ranging from skull and flowers, to globes and ice cream. considering himself a collector of visual impressions, baechler poured his vast archive into a vocabulary that's all his own. on the occasion of this exhibition, a special monograph will be presented at the opening, in attendance of the master himself. location: weteringschans 79a [centrum].
