Lance Letscher -- Catalog Find

I was at one of my favorite thrift stores today and happened upon several Lance Letscher books and posters. Don't know where they came from but they were all new and signed. I picked up the "New Work, Conduit Gallery, 2004" catalog, but am considering returning for a few of the others. I've been a fan of Letscher's work since I saw an exhibit at D Berman years ago. His pieces are mesmerizing in their complexity and attention to detail. Of course, I love that he's (re)using old books.

"I'm attracted to art that has an endless quality to it," he says. "The sort of images that make you feel like you're falling into them until you're completely encompassed in a different world."
