MP Landis's abstract paintings and works on paper are the type that take form through the artist's layering of materials. This painting behaves like an object you can pick up and hold - it appears solid and substantial. And in some ways, it is. Playing with grids and gestures, Landis's painting emotes and conveys to the viewer something like a memory - familiar but not specific, bringing its own emotional reality.
