Paul Landis is a non-practicing musician and former aviation executive who called Alaska home before moving to Prescott in 2013. In a life devoted to motion and change, it was only natural for him to create art that moves and changes too. He works in varying thicknesses of aluminum, with aircraft-grade riveting, structural wires of aluminum or stainless steel, and acrylic paint. These materials are sturdy, flexible, and lightweight, allowing the finished pieces to move gently in the most delicate of breezes. The interaction of solid materials with ephemeral air currents both catches his eye and tickles his soul. Some of his pieces pay obvious homage to mobile master, Alexander Calder. Like Calder, Paul is drawn to abstract shapes, positive and negative spaces, and bold primary colors. He sees balance as the key to harmony and freedom.
