Landon Bailey Higgins

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. In his current body of work, Higgins takes you into the world of his own where glistening human flesh is instead the sweet, shiny, light-filled gelatin of a Gummy Bear. Through an extensive series of paintings and drawings, Landon Bailey Higgins overlaps qualities of still-life, figurative and landscape painting while illustrating the intense isolation of his journey. The often tenderly awkward psychological tableaus of luminosity play out in oil on panel, linen or color pencil on paper. And it’s all brought to life by a cast of his comforting Gummy Bears.
