Lederle in front of ‘AYURNAMAT’, oil on canvas, 66″ by 60″
After a bit of a wait, Michael catches a ferry across the notorious Sulu Sea to the northern tip of Borneo. There, he visits an orangutan rehabilitation center. From there, Michael ventures south to Kuching in Sarawak, once ruled by what were known as the White Rajahs. Then he travels inward to a longhouse where members of the Iban people reside.

Game Drive in the Maasai Mara nearby the Cottar’s Safari Camp
Masai Mara National Reserve is Kenya’s finest wildlife reserve. Everything about this reserve is outstanding. The wildlife is abundant and the gentle rolling grasslands ensure that animals are never out of sight. Between July and October, when the great wildebeest migration is in the Masai Mara National Reserve, the sensation is unparalleled. Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp, which is situated in the Masai Mara, bordering the Serengeti and Loliondo ecosystem, in an untouched 200,000-acre exclusive concession providing the visitors an abundance of wildlife. Thank you Calvin Cottar, Ken (our guide) & Lasase (Maasai Mara), Douglas ( camp manager), Daniel & Francis (mess tent butlers), Bernard (room steward) and the great Cottar’s Camp team.

Q: Tell us about your first wall art… do you still own it?
A: The first piece I ever collected was a large oil on wood showing three male figures on a background of gold leaf by a then-young Hermann Lederle. This painting is still a favorite, the gold leaf background constantly shifts, refracts and changes with the light by the hour… like a living thing. I’ve represented Hermann since that day and have pleasure & satisfaction of seeing his work deepen and grow. His work is on frankpicturesgallery.com & my gallery on Amazon amazon.com/frankpicturesgallery

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’s paintings capture how it feels to see in the modern world. Waterlilies are replaced with welcome screens and rolling sunsets with flashing advertisements.
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.
Lederle’s work has a 3-D, almost architectural reality, 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.
Translation to german:
Hermann Lederle, geboren in Mannheim, Deutschland, lebt heute in Los Angeles, Kalifornien. Seine neuen Bilder geben dem Impressionismus eine zeitgenössische Ausdrucksform. Wo damals Frühlingsfarbtöne und feine Pinselstriche die Landschaft auflösten, arbeitet Lederle in den Farben und Formen unserer Zeit. Seine Bilder haben Ecken und Kanten mit einer pulsierenden elektrischen Energie.
Lederles Gemälde erfassen, wie es sich anfühlt, in der modernen Welt zu sehen. Seerosen werden durch Begrüßungsfenster (Splash Screens) und Sonnenuntergänge durch blinkende Anzeigen auf Bildschirmen ersetzt.
Die neuen Arbeiten entstehen in einem 2-stufigen Prozess. Zunächst wird Farbe in mehreren Schichten und Abstufungen mit einem herkömmlichen Pinsel aufgetragen. Danach werden Kanten und Tiefen mit unterschiedlichen Malspachteln im scheinbaren Widerspruch herausgearbeitet.
Die Bilder erreichen ohne Einsatz der Geometrie eine fast architektonische 3D Realität, die den Betrachter einlädt sich auf die Reise in das Innere des Bildes und Seiner selbst aufzumachen.

Imagine Claude Monet’s pastel Poplars… if Monet was working 100 years later and spent a lot of time on the internet… and you get somewhere close to the work of Hermann Lederle.
