Lance Letscher






Lance Letscher trained in printmaking, now his preferred specialist medium is collage where he creates spectrum's from memories and abandoned documents.

"I love the traces of other peoples lives and thoughts that become a patina on the stuff I use. Especially when I see things that little kids did in books 50 or 100 years ago. They were bored and, I think, more creative because of it."

"The work guides the work and the material choices. I am a disciple of "the unseen hand". I am all about working in a way that takes as much of the control away from my conscious mind as possible. It (the work) has a life of it's own, I just try to stay out of the way as much as possible. The "dreaming mind" is much more powerful than the "thinking mind".
