Karen Lederer’s paintings are filled with patterns reminiscent of Marimekko, references to her New York City upbringing, reproductions of iconic artworks, and signs of the current political moment. Captured at a close range evocative of an Instagram photo, the scenes depict a distinct image with paint. Both flat and rendered, the work conveys a spatial disorientation that denies stability. By mixing diverse processes in each piece, she seeks to create environments that are at once constructed and artificial, yet private and personal.
