Lederle's paintings continue to evolve with dense color expanses woven into heavily textured line structures. The latest series entails a two-stage process, where at first a graduated color is applied with a traditional brush allowing for the distinct qualities of its stroke to emerge. The second stage is executed with a painter's knife often with ostensibly contradictory linear shapes and lines, imbuing it with the properties of rival perceptions taking place within the canvases. “Lederle’s work has a 3-D, almost architectural reality”, says gallerist Laurie Frank, “ achieved without employing geometry. He creates a progression of inner space expanse that the paintings invite you to enter as an explorer evoking the thrilling sensation of stepping on virgin ground.”

Hermann Lederle was born in Germany. He studied painting, photography and filmmaking at the San Francisco Art Institute. Recent exhibitions include shows at the Alicia Armstrong Gallery Palm Desert, the Copal Fine Art Gallery Palm Desert, the Solaris Gallery Los Angeles, the MVPA Artfest Los Angeles, the Paris Photo Gallery, and the Schroeck- Schmidt Gallery in Germany. He is also a celebrated director and production designer having worked with Michael Bay, Mark Romanek, Paula Walker, Erik Ifergan and Phil Joanou. He has directed commercials for AT&T, NFL/Seattle Seahawks, VoiceStream Wireless, Heineken and Bacardi Rum, to name a few.
