EXHIBITION FEBRUARY 2011: Selected Paintings by Hermann Lederle


Hermann Lederle

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.

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 now resides in Los Angeles, California, where he works in his Hollywood loft.

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.

Some of his notable exhibitions were at the Arthea Gallery - ART Karlsruhe, Germany 2014, Frank Pictures Gallery Santa Monica 2012, Alicia Armstrong Gallery 2011, the Frank Pictures Gallery Santa Monica 2005, the Solaris Gallery Los Angeles 2005, the Media Rare Gallery Los Angeles 2001 and the Schroeck-Schmidt Gallery in Germany 2000.
