The WD series is my largest and most important body of work. It began in the fall of 1996 and has become an all-encompassing conduit for my experiences and processes in and out of the studio. I began the series innocently enough, never guessing that it would become an ongoing practice that records materials and concerns happening in the studio presently, while inspiring and informing what else comes next with larger work and projects.

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 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.
