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 and was awarded a solo exhibition at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum in 1995. Soon after, he moved to Brooklyn, NY where he lived, worked and exhibited until 2015 when he and his family moved to Portland, Maine. Since 1990 he has been in over 30 solo exhibitions and numerous 2-person and group exhibits and is included in many public and private collections.
“Through my work I am always interested in the dialogue between process and artifact, the doing and the finished. This tension is ever present in how I work and what I choose to exhibit.”
