Carrie Lederer’s work transports viewers across land and sky, illuminating a path to the deep, dark recesses of our universe. Her perspective—both micro and macro—conveys the bold and delicate forms that exist in the mysterious realms that surround us. Lederer’s up-close encounter with nature begins each day with her journey through the family garden, a place that continues to inspire her wondrous nature-scapes. About her work she states: “I am continually captured by nature’s sheer exuberance—a spectacle of complexity—beautiful, simple, and haphazard.” Read Carrie’s full artist’s statement.
