Textile, Campo di Fiori

This is a Textile. It was created by Richard Landis. We acquired it in 2018. Its medium is mercerized cotton double weave.

The twelve-color palette of Campo di Fiori is woven so that all seventy-eight possible full and half tones are expressed in a composition of nine pattern areas, each of which seems to have its own center and its own logic. The title refers to the 16th-century Italian mathematician and cosmologist Giordano Bruno, who was martyred there.

This object was donated by Richard Landis.
