I NEED YOU CRAZY & BE GOOD IN HOLLYWOOD at Factory Art Loft showing 2021
Figure vs. form, phrase vs. color. I try to dispose of the formation of concepts. I don’t like it to intercede. I deal with the conceptual at its trivial level - defining the ability to lay out.

Some of the larger canvases have a vital, explosive energy -- the large pixels radiating outward rhythmically, like a waltz, suggest a reserved spontaneity. At the center there is calm, control, and powerful emotion. They can be puzzle-like, with a trompe-l’oeuil quality. Figures or shapes disguised within the painting are not at first apparent, but once seen cannot be unseen. Figures float to the surface and then sink back.

This heavily textured work was built up over several months allowing its forms to mutate and wander about changing hues and color tones as much as de-emphasizing its core phrase. Some PIXEL elements are retained from the earlier work by Lederle, yet the lines and shapes are less structured and more intuitively rendered. The bits of colors seem to barely hold on to its underpinnings, wanting to break away stimulated by a sudden burst of  creative inspiration.

FOREVER YOUNG
oil on canvas, 50 by 66 inches (127x168cm), 2008
KNOLL EXHIBITION

A rough stencilled word etched into the enigmatic image evoking a textured face or perhaps a landscape. The use of translucent coldwax, a substance that adds body to paint for impasto technique imbues a competitive edge, a toughness. An adolescent young. Forever, a promise as much as a determination of hope. The moment frozen in time, whilst shattering the glass by tempting to halt the future. The paint itself peaks to a crescendo in appearance and purpose. Also part of the PIXEL series this work leans on Lederle’s early engagement with expressive figuration, but makes a significant shift towards abstraction.

KNOLL EXHIBITION

Born out of the 'PIXEL' series paintings, this piece retains the basic elements of shapes and structure familiarized by this work series. But in a twist,  hard edgy grooves seemingly carved out of the paint surface suggest a facial outline along with the beat of a phrase laid over. A push to break the constant.
