d berman gallery is pleased to present two concurrent
shows by Austin artist Lance Letscher.
an exhibit of new collages by Lance Letscher, opens
at d berman gallery on Thursday, 9 March, with a reception
from 6 - 8 PM, and will continue through 15 April
2006. A gallery talk will be held at d berman gallery
on Saturday, 8 April 2006, at 1:00 PM.
Letscher “is not the only artist using cast-off books
and papers but he is one of the very few whose modernity
supersedes the nostalgia of old materials without
sacrificing their elegiac power. Every appropriation
of derelict scraps declares a sharp contemporary wit.
But in Mr. Letscher’s hands, the declaration rises
to a threnody for lives that left no monument, only
accumulations of ephemera poised for dispersion. …
[His work] … is a roller coaster ride of mood shifts,
from playfulness to solemnity. … An exquisite color
sense and empathy with his materials create coherence
among dissimilar design motifs. These are the twin
axes on which Mr. Letscher’s madcap poetry revolves.”
