Patrick Landsley Print Biography

Patrick Landsley was born in Winnipeg in 1926. He studied at the Winnipeg School of Art under Lionel Lemoine FitzGerald and Joseph Plaskett (1947-49) and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts School of Art and Design (1950-51), before moving to Paris to study at the Academie Montmartre under Fernand Leger (1952) and at the Academie Ranson (1953). Patrick Landsley taught at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts' School of Art and Design from 1954-66 and at Concordia University's Faculty of Fine Art for almost 30 years (1966-95). His watercolours and mixed media works with oil on multiple levels of masonite are brilliantly coloured and have the appearance of relief collages. His work is often inspired by the landscape of Greece - its ancient sites, villages, mountains, plains, valleys and sea - a consequence of his frequent trips over the past 15 years. Patrick Landsley lives and works in Woodstock, Ontario, where he often works as a set designer for the local theatre.
