DAWN - at Sunset Plaza Residence Los Angeles - Pixel Series by Hermann Lederle
Lederle’s painting evoke a variety of associations based on an elementary, geometrical vocabulary: circles, grids, squares and stripes. Then there is also a representation of figurative content.

THE AMBIGUOUS PRESENCE
Lederle often hides figures within the larger works. It provides  history, a timeline. The mélange of the material oil paint set against the gold leaf is what gives it its vicissitude.

TRANSCENDENCE OF PIXEL
The Pixel series at Factory Art Studio 2020 showing the paintings 'FIRST IMAGE', 'MOCKMUTAUL' and 'MEMORY'
The PIXEL series constantly plays with form and duality of superimposed layers of varying focal lengths rendered subject matter. The construct aims to nonchalantly free its spectator of foreordained conception of what one chooses to see.

The painting titled ‘Flower Target’ might be one of the classic pieces by Hermann Lederle were he is experimenting with the concept of dematerialization, proclaiming that painting should avoid any references to experience outside the material presence of the work itself, but simultaneously  rebelling against these accepted rules. Instead of subscribing to conventional wisdom of non-representational formalism, he challenges a need to acknowledge that the creative processes were related to content.

Lederle’s painting evokes a variety of associations based on an elementary, geometrical vocabulary: circles, grids, squares and stripes. Then there is also a representation of figurative content. The simplicity of the forms is played down by a deceptive form of nonchalance. The contours are not clearly defined. Amorphous forms appear to melt into each other like paraffin. Blots of color can be discerned, sharp edges percolate for no apparent reason, and the anatomy of the brushstrokes is always discernible.

Lederle often hides figures within the larger works. It provides a history, a timeline. He builds the painting up, from the very first stroke to the very last, while leaving behind evidence of each previous stage so that it is possible to see how the painting has evolved. Each painting encompasses a span of time, intimating a gradual unfolding, the antithesis of a photograph which captures an instant.

VOYAGE
oil on canvas, 48 by 48 inches (122x122cm), 2002

A painting for the purpose of itself. This work, part of the PIXEL series, was created out of the process of painting, litterally the medium itself, and much less out of a perception of concepts or constructs of abstractions. It is a sensory exploitation of material and matter. Any preexisting cultural themes and theories aside, the work here merely presents and does not intend to explain cultural, aesthetic norms.
The painting is an elemental structure occupied by visual instances that declare their ambiguous presence: superimpositions and divisions that are fundamentally unimportant - the surface divided into squares - produced within the material itself and not overlaid artificially.
