“i am an amateur thespian, photographer, sculptor, and painter. you are an artist too, even if you don’t think you are.” — philip albert lederer
“nothing can happen without activism.” — eleanor holmes norton, delegate to the u.s. house of representatives
i am interested in making art to inspire people and bring them together to discuss important ideas. my goal is to bring emotion and energy into my photography, paintings, and sculpture, and explore that space between humans, animals (particularly dogs), plants, and the built environment, including hospitals. and my art doesn’t exist in isolation, it is integrated into my music (see http://www.philiplederer.org/music and my fiction see http://www.philiplederer.org/book).
i am thinking about marcel proust, and exploring concepts like memory, dementia, and the loss of time. i am also thinking about childhood play, movement, sex, and death, as i paint, create, and take photos. since i don’t have formal training in art, i really would value your feedback.
