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 & my gallery on Amazon

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.
