"When Baechler made his debut in the world of art, graffiti art stood for something new: the exaltation of a young language influencing people's lifestyle and social behaviour. While Baechler was much appreciated by young members of the public, he never brought his art to the street, but preferred to keep it in museum halls and gallery spaces more suited to him. The ideas of escape, travel and the acquisition of knowledge are suggested by the images themselves rather than their frames: large canvases that evoke roads, kilometres, dust and a sense of temporariness. A suggestion more than an actual experience, Baechler's art is ultimately a metaphor."
Luca Beatrice, excerpted from Donald Baechler: XL + XS.

Text by Luca Beatrice, Alan Jones.

With the collage sensibility of Robert Rauschenberg and the colorful brashness of Cy Twombly, American painter Donald Baechler (born 1956) makes works of invigorating vitality, positing boldly symbolic shapes (flowers, skulls, globes), rendered in cartoon-thick black outlines, onto collaged or painted backgrounds, or else confronting marbled, tea-stained grounds with heavy black silhouettes, potato-print style, of plants, rough human forms and other evocative formations. Baechler's newest volume here presents 200 color reproductions of his recent works: seven gargantuan canvases (XL) and hundreds of modestly-scaled drawings (XS), no larger than a legal pad of paper. These could be described as postmodern cave drawings: "I tend to be interested," the artist has said, "in things I find on the street or things drawn on toilet walls or things drawn by someone I meet in a bar, who maybe has never made a drawing since he was five years old."

Published by Anders Tornberg.
Afterword by Donald Baechler. Essay by Davvetas Demosthenes.

York House Suite (named after the hotel in Lisbon, Portugal, where the drawings were executed) marks the start of a working method for the American artist Donald Baechler. Baechler creates blue ink-wash drawings and collages around a central theme or themes; in this case, some of the drawings derive from a primitive Portuguese toy which allows children to construct a limited number of human forms from a set of wooden shapes. Others are inspired by paintings in the Portuguese National Museum. This beautifully produced volume also includes a selection of fictional writings by the Greek author Demosthenes Davvetas.
