ARTHEA GALLERY EXHIBITION 'ADAPTATION' 2015 BY HERMANN LEDERLE
EXHIBITION AT ARTHEA 2015
Reminiscent of partially open Levelor blinds, a network of dense and narrow vertical bands sweep across the canvas. Without fully revealing it, the piece 'ADAPTATION' suggests an expanse of pictorial depth. It accommodates something that is turbulent and veiled, expressionistic and controlled. This balance suggests a mystery, a conundrum, a koan.
RE-IMAGINED
ADAPTATION 'EAU' & 'CIELO' QUAD
FACTORY ART 2020
Each piece is constructed from two original paintings on canvas, which are cut into stripes and reassembled on new canvases. You read it up and down, down and up, systematically working your way across.

'ADAPTATION' is massiv. Measuring five and a half feet by ten feet, this totemic monument doesn’t just envelop you, it anchors you to the ground.
Those vertical bands consist of the vivid and expressionistic decades-old paintings that Lederle has painstakingly hand-cut and then collaged onto the canvas, leaving just enough space so that the original marks show through as interstices of the canvas.
 Adaptation looks backward to move forward.  Without fully revealing it, the piece suggests an expanse of pictorial depth. It accommodates something that is turbulent and veiled, expressionistic and controlled.
The work corrals something prior and powerful, something that had once been deeply felt and is now remembered.

German artist Hermann Lederle is a visual composer of line, shape, and color. His gestural paintings lead the viewer across the canvas in a dance of vibrant hues and undulating forms. Often working at a large scale, Lederle treats the canvas as a space, moving across the perimeter of his works as he intuitively applies paint to the surface.

This work from the ADAPTATION SERIES combines two original paintings cut into stripes and reconstructed onto a singles canvas. The surface suggests it was uncovered through scraping and gashing of its heavily textured oil paint. By means of this, Lederle’s innovative composition and technique lays the groundwork for an evolution of new expressive hybrids.

APPARENT OPPOSITES
The installation of an exhibition by three artists Jay Silverman, Cora Silverman and Hermann Lederle curated by Susan Velez on March 22, 2017 in Hollywood

'ADAPTATION' - THE MAKING OF... AND PREVIEW OF 'ADAPTATION' 2016
CROSSCURRENTS - ADAPTATION CIELO EAST
ADAPTATION ‘CIELO EAST’ by Hermann Lederle | 2016 served as an inspiration/visualization for composer Steffen Wick to produce Crosscurrents. The art piece is constructed from two original paintings on canvas, which are cut into stripes and reassembled on new canvases.

Almost metaphorically speaking the composer states this.

Composition 2.1 – two composers – one work

The unusual combination of large brass ensemble and symphony orchestra follows the rare combination of two composers working on one piece (Steffen Wick & Florian Ross). Crosscurrents explores the possibilities of compositional collaboration and brings together different musical styles. Distinct musical islands are interlinked and enable the entering of unknown terrain.
