Textile, Apollo

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

“Window blocks” is a traditional double cloth pattern, but Landis pushes its design capabilities by developing complex color systems in both the windows and frame. With a nod to Josef Albers’s Homage to the Square paintings, he lines each side of each window with a contrasting color, shifting our perception of the colors within.

This object was donated by Richard Landis.
