will be Lance Letscher's first Austin exhibition since
his successful New York and Houston shows. “The viewer
is drawn close by Letscher's exquisite color and striking
compositions, and is then rewarded by the lively details
of the letters, notes and scraps of paper. The artist's
labor-intensive process of cutting and gluing thousands

abstract pictures. Letscher's labor becomes a fitting
metaphor for the hard work of the characters whose lives
are chronicled in the very material of these collages.”
Melissa Kuntz, Art in America. Mr. Letscher has upcoming
shows scheduled for Munich, Tokyo, and New York.
