Statement

Lederle's paintings capture how it feels to see in the modern world. Waterlilies are replaced with welcome screens and rolling sunsets with flashing advertisements. But there is a beauty to this contemporary image of seeing.

The German painter, who now resides in Los Angeles, gives impressionism a contemporary inflection. Where before wispy brushstrokes and springtime hues ruled, Lederle works in the colors and shapes of our time. His paintings have an edge to them and an electric energy pulsing throughout. Lederle creates his 3-D effect by first painting with a traditional brush and then reworking it with a painter's knife, giving the paint a contradictory texture.

Hermann Lederle has pursued various forms and mediums of the arts. After attending Karl Friedrich School for humanist and classic studies, Hermann re-directed his career path. His experience in photography taught him a new sense of beauty and atmosphere and inspired him to further his education in painting, photography and filmmaking at the San Francisco Art Institute.

There, Hermann established his own visual language to express his multiple ideas and passion through the lens, on canvas and on the screen. His paintings were inspired by travels all over this country and abroad in where he developed a strong following.

Over the last years Lederle's paintings continued 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 tractional 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.

He has become known and well-respected as an accomplished artist in the U.S. and Europe. His works of art have been exhibited in various galleries in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Germany, Canada, Hungary and France. Hermann's paintings are in private collections of the Friedman Guinness Gallery Heidelberg Germany, Court Gallery New York, Lawson Galleries San Francisco, Media Rare Gallery Los Angeles and in the homes of Ringo Starr, Eric Stolz, Cal Zecca, Gabor Csupo. Hermann Lederle currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

Recent exhibitions have taken place at Arthea Gallery Mannheim 2013, Frank Pictures Gallery Santa Monica 2012 and Alicia Armstrong Gallery Palm Desert 2011.
