M P Landis: gardens & peoples

Inspired by the creations of his children, Landis revisits his early abstracted figurative work that he first became known for in the early 1990’s, in a less dark and politically charged way. In this exhibit of recent work he has created primitive faces, flowers, playful gardens and mutant shapes, often with fictional names suggested by his children.


M P Landis has been working in various visual media since childhood. In 1989 he moved to Provincetown, MA to concentrate on painting and began exhibiting almost immediately in galleries there and was awarded a solo exhibition at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum in 1996. Soon after, he moved to Brooklyn, NY where he lived and worked until 2015 when he and his family then moved to Portland, Maine. Since 1990 he has been in over 30 solo exhibitions and many 2-person and group exhibits and is included in many public and private collections. 

In 2018 Landis had solo exhibitions at Ocean House Gallery, Cape Elizabeth, ME, and the Frank Brockman Gallery, Brunswick, ME; and was in group exhibits at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, Brattleboro, VT;  AMP: Art Market Provincetown, Provincetown, MA; Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, Truro, MA; Cynthia Winings Gallery, Blue Hill, ME; and the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, MA.
