Karen Lederer

    Karen Lederer was born in 1986 in New York, USA. She received her BFA in Printmaking and Drawing from Washington University in St. Louis in 2008 and an MFA in Printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, in 2012. Her first solo exhibition was at Field Projects in New York, USA, in 2017.

    Lederer’s paintings focus on the items in our daily, domestic life, combining objects from her imagination with objects from current consumer culture. Plants, pets, drinks and snacks all appear in her work. Lederer often includes other artist’s work in her own paintings, depicted in reproduction, on mugs, posters or books. In addition to painting, Lederer has also created a significant body of monoprints.

    Lederer has exhibited widely in the USA, including at Unpaved Gallery, Yucca Valley, California (2019); Ortega y Gasset Projects, New York (2018); White Space Gallery, Atlanta, Georgia (2017); and Studio E Gallery, Seattle, Washington (2016).

    Karen Lederer lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, USA. She exhibited at Cristea Roberts Gallery for the first time in 2021 as part of the exhibition Just what is it…?.
