Schjeldahl on Robert Bechtle

Good article in the New Yorker this week on the Robert Bechtle show up at SF MOMA. “Parked Cars” by Peter Schjeldahl, May 5, 2005 issue.

The problem of how to live in this land, as it actually is, has outfaced all attempts to escape or transcend it. And the benumbing domination of our visual culture by cameras, of one kind or another, is as urgent a challenge to painting now as it was when Andy Warhol wedded mechanical imagery to high art four decades ago.
