Biography

In both his photographs and paintings, Jim Landry explores the extremes of size and scale. What started small becomes big and what was large is represented in a form that is smaller. Light, color, and texture are themes that are explored in both his color photographs and his canvases. Although his subject matter is typically traditional—portraits and still lives—the manner in which his subjects (small toys, architectural details, human faces) are represented often border on the abstract.   As a multidisciplinary artist, he says, “I’ve always felt that everything I do is connected. My photographs sometimes become paintings, which lead me to new subject matter for making pictures. My music becomes the soundtrack for all of this activity.” The following images are from Jim's "Pixilated Portraits."
