Textile, Untitled

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

Landis compares this piece to a symphony, with four “movements,” defined by the obvious cross. A “shadow” is formed by graduating the colors from light to dark in one pattern and from dark to light in the adjacent area, creating the illusion of a 3-dimensional form hovering above the surface.

This object was donated by Richard Landis.
