FRANK PICTURES GALLERY EXHIBITION HERMANN LEDERLE PAINTINGS 2012
"Lederle’s work has a 3-D, almost architectural reality," says gallerist Laurie Frank, "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."

FOOTPRINTS ON SNOW EXHIBITION BY HERMANN LEDERLE
'Imagine Claude Monet's pastel Poplars... if Monet was working 100 years later and spent a lot of time on the internet... you get somewhere close to the work of Lederle.'

CRAZY ONE, FRANK PICTURES GALLERY EXHIBITION 2012
Lederle's paintings continue 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 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, imbuing it with the properties of rival perceptions taking place within the canvases.​​​​​​​
THE WORK
EFFACÉ oil on canvas, 60 by 66 inches, 2011, Hermann Lederle
EFFACÉ
oil on canvas, 60 by 66 inches (152x168cm), 2011
NOT AVAILABLE
EFFACÉ was first exhibited at Frank Pictures Gallery In Santa Monica 2012. The motifs of the works and in particular the painting ‘Effacé’ are grounded in the dynamic interplay between binary opposites of the geometric and organic. A back and forth that animate from the conscious to the unconscious mimicking the process of its creation. Providence and random assigned in the same competing space  -  the metaphor of a coin flip for randomness remains unquestioned.

Lederle’s abstract paintings are moored in enthusiasm and an intense occupation with the routine of creation itself. This featured canvas reveals Lederle's intrenched exploration of line and form through color. He is emphasizing matters which swell to the veneer only to evaporate and materialize elsewhere again that seesaws between illusionary and metaphorical, thereby examining the interstices segregating abstraction and figuration.

- That tiny voice that tells you to jerk the steering wheel just to the right and take a flying leap... the call of the Siren song - L’ Appel Du Vide
The piece titled "L' Appel Du Vide" can be seen as the coda to the "Footprints on Snow" series of Lederle's work exhibited at Frank Pictures Gallery in Santa Monica, California the year before in 2012. It ties in conceptually and aesthetically to the earlier works, yet in a more freely executed paint application style.
