About the Artwork
Baechler is famous for depicting simple every day objects that allude to the cultural symbolism of nostalgia. In his works the artist combines collage, drawing and painting; Baechler is concerned with form and emphasizes the importance of the line and balance.
"The world of the background rarely blends into the world of the foreground."
Rose is a prominent motive in Baechler's work.The flower's symbolism is presented with simple naivety. The pure aesthetics of this narrative-absent flower reminds about the childhood - when the conscious judgments are not yet present. The background of this 28 color silkscreen is rich in fading detail while the foreground gains its definition.
