Lance Letscher





Lance Letscher is a Texas artist who began creating collages after earning a MFA from UT. He uses lots of found material, like paperback book covers, album jackets, handwriting samples, and children's drawings to make what "gradually evolved into a more complex form based on color and pattern. There are some hints of landscape and representation, but mostly [the pieces] are meant to be a kind of emotional or psychological diagram -- interior portraits." Lance has a monograph coming out from UT press next Spring and a show at David Berman Gallery in Austin that opens May 22nd. I like the complexity of these collages and their slight post-tornado feel. There is so much going on and his use of found objects makes them really rich. See also McMurtrey Gallery in Houston. Thanks Lance!

I'm a big fan of Letscher. Luckily he often shows at Howard Scott in NYC (where I live), too.

He had a survey show at the Galveston Arts Center a few years back and they published a nice catalogue that is still available in theri giftshop.
