Hermann Lederle

Painting

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.

Hermann Lederle

Malerei

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.

Artist Statement

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.

On Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst Gagosian Gallery Beverly Hills 1-12-2012

Perhaps the paintings don’t have any meaning, but are simply supports for whatever perspective you bring to them. If you desire them, then they’re either anodyne interior decoration or antidepressants for aimless, postmodern lives. If you’re angry with them, then they’re lifestyle trophies for the rich and symbols of the exploitative one percent. You pick — there’s no wrong answer.
