Have you met…MP Landis?


An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist MP Landis.

Artist statement
“All of my artwork deals with the functionality of process, and the materials at hand, in different ways. Another important aspect is the willingness to become lost in what is at hand and the resulting tension between resolution and allowing things to remain lost.” MP Landis
