Textile, Nucleus, 1976
This is a textile. It was created by Richard Landis. It is dated 1976 and we acquired it in 1978. Its medium is cotton and its technique is double cloth (two interlocked plain weave structures). It is a part of the Textiles department.
Nucleus and Signal are the result of Landis’s only collaborative work, created with graphic designer Craig Fuller. A subtle symmetry is created by precisely repeating the same color sequence in the warp and weft. What may appear a random arrangement of colored squares is a balanced and controlled expression of a well-modulated palette.
