For his new series of collages on board, Work from the middle ages, Lance Letscher uses discarded books as his raw materials. Salvaging tomes from a dumpster behind his local used bookstore, the Austin-based Letscher favours academic relics from college and high school days. The results are surprisingly colourful, not unlike a collection of quilts. Patterns range from the geometric and architectural array of stripes and cubes to fans and pinwheels that produce a softer, yet dizzying effect.
Artist: Lance Letscher
Work from the middle ages runs through January 28, 2012 at dberman gallery in Wimberley, Texas.
