          The Secret Life of Lance Letscher is a deeply personal and psychological portrait of internationally-known collage artist Lance Letscher, told through his memories of triumph and trauma and will premiere as Ovation’s Artists and Icons movie of the week.

          Featuring images of more than a hundred of his intricate and complex collages, sculptures and installations, viewers gain insight into Letscher’s methodical techniques and brilliant mind. The documentary film is directed, produced and edited by Sandra Adair. Adair, A.C.E. is an Academy Award-nominated feature film editor (Boyhood) and is making her directorial debut  with The Secret Life of Lance Letscher.

 


           Letscher creates poetic, often playful collages out of found objects, such as old letters, newspaper clippings, books, recipes and album covers, all cut and composed into fascinating patterns and textures. A skilled colorist and abstractionist, Letscher’s growing international reputation has resulted in solo shows in England, France, Germany, Poland, Spain. In 2009, his monograph collage was published by the University of Texas Press. His art resides in the collections of the Austin Museum of Art, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and numerous corporations.
