LANDON BAILEY HIGGINS
Lives and works in New York
Landon Bailey Higgins is a New York based artist whose masterful paintings are infused with a sense of humor balanced by the pathos of maneuvering life as an overachieving, gay, southern transplant in New York City.
His hyper-realistic paintings are provocative and yet humorous. Through his work, Higgins takes you into his own world, where human flesh is instead a sweet, shiny and chubby gummy bears. Higgins uses his obsession with light and color theory to illuminate and illustrate the underlying narratives. This meticulous combination of theatrical light, glowing colors and raw sexuality is characteristic of Higgins' work. He brings the techniques of the old masters into the 21st century, visualized through the pop culture icon, the gummy bear. His technique is sublime and thus he is a perfect match for Gallery Poulsen's team of exceptional painters.
