Blurring the boundaries between paint-scape and landscape reality, and between the paint and its intended object, the work by Hermann Lederle combines geometric abstraction and pure color concept to explore a new ethereal thematic.

These images take time to absorb, asking you to invest and trust, not speed through in a frenzy. A new-dimensional structure slowly emerges transcending past traditional geometrics.

Amidst all the creative process, stylistic elements emerge in subtle steps quite imperceptible, imprinting forms of a gothic pattern. Apparently this work not just embodies the use of ROTA PIXEL, it embellishes and raises the potential of the blots to new heights and dimensions.

This three panel painting is a continuation of the latest landscape versus paint-scape exploration by Lederle. It builds upon the fundamentals of the PIXEL series, but with a distinct dot structure and its colors separated into CMYK - similar to a crude inkjet printer. The entire surface appears viewed through a prism, splitting the light along bands of primary hues and tones. Imagine a slice cut from the earth and staged under the sunlight in our present day world, leaving one free to marvel or read.
It tempts to coach the spectator along a path to unearth, uncover long lost history ions ago.
This new technique of semi transparent paint blots marks a beginning of what might be called the ROTA PIXEL painting.

'INTO THE WILD', inspired by the age-old desire of exploration and conquest, is proposing to stage such passage from a merely observational parading of its subject into a purely artistic matter. In a sense, the work tries to let the paint itself thrust the viewer onto mode/style mimicking the traipsing.​​​​​​​

This work by Lederle, ‘INTO THE LAKE’ wants to capture the essence of this actual landscape in symbolic abstraction. J.M.W. Turner was drawn to this location nearly 180 years earlier and produced one of his great works,  ‘THE BLUE RIGI’, in 1842.
Lederle’s painting is multifunctional: it is a mood, an atmospheric composition of nature in the abstract as much as it is a homage to Turner’s painting at the same location. Cold wax mixed generously into the oil paint, creates a transparency and light effect surrounding the solid fields of shimmering bluish rock. It is also an attempt by the artist to connect elements from the PIXEL series to his new works.

It might be of innate interest to learn, how this painting’s early stage developed and eventually ended up radically metamorphing opposite style elements, with the result of moving Lederle’s work towards a whole new direction. This appropriation of unrestrained analogues may not surprise, one only needs to look at his previous painting series ‘ADAPTATION’. As contrary as the fan-shaped color fields in the first stage vanish under the ubiquitous ROTA PIXEL blots, they hold their own in the balance. And a new visual is born.

'INTO THE HILLS' by Lederle is a work that calls for an expression of pure color, abstract form, and the seductive materiality of paint. We are witness to the process of incremental breakthroughs that expand the language of abstraction.
The shapes and strokes do not refer to what’s seen in nature, but rather the paint is the subject.
