He kind of got lost in the shuffle of the other process-based abstract artists, but has progressed nicely without all the market pressure. Currently has a great solo show at James Fuentes and check out his upcoming exhibitions: landonmetz.com/index.php?page=cv
Forthcoming at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and a two-person show with Morris Louis (!) at Paul Kasmin
I only recently started to pay attention to this artist, at first it blended in with the mess of all this other minimal abstraction and perhaps because it's so understated I kind of glossed over it but after spending a little time digesting his work I really think he's got amazing talent.
I think he's one of the few young "artrank" artists that will really last. So many of the new abstractionists I find myself having a hard time figuring out if they really have innate talent or is it just a gimmick or flashy of the moment trend, usually the latter. While a lot of those artists have some hits and a lot of misses I really like every phase of his work. Even Landon's early more messy abstractions (below) feel extremely well handled, like a Joe Bradley but more refined and nuanced. I can clearly see he has a great eye and a vision driving him - although I'm sure it's not everyone's cup of tea.
(For anyone interested there is someone on the forum right now selling a great piece by Metz)
