This is a Textile.
In many of Landis’s works, all of the colors are fully integrated across the entire surface. In this piece, pure blue, green, and orange are confined to tiny, faceted, jewel-like blocks of color couched in a matrix of neutral tans.
American designer Richard Landis is a master colorist and weaver whose visual language is that of an abstract artist.
This object was previously on display as a part of the exhibition Color Decoded: The Textiles of Richard Landis.
