Through the use of painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, writing, video and audio, Landers reveals the process of artistic creation through humor and confession, gravity and pathos. He blurs the lines between fact and fiction, reality and fantasy, sincerity and insincerity, while presenting a portrait of the artist’s consciousness. Landers’s work is represented in numerous museum and public collections including the Brooklyn Museum of Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and elsewhere. Landers lives and works in New York City.
