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.


Carrie Lederer is a painter, sculptor and installation artist who exhibits her nature-inspired work across the United States. She has built site-specific installations for Turtle Bay Museum, de Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, San Jose ICA, and many others. Lederer is a recipient of the prestigious Fleishhacker Foundation Eureka Award, and she has completed commissions for Facebook, UCSF Medical Center, Art Source and private collections. See her full bio.


Lederer’s installations—built like a 3D still-life—use both real and constructed nature to explore ideas about landscape. Woven into her dense, tapestry-like environments is a constellation of objects representing sound, movement, texture and pattern found in our nature world.
