Textile, Nines

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

In this radiant composition, a grid of narrow bands forms an implied frame. Full tones and larger forms are clustered in the center, giving a feeling of brilliant openness and clarity, much like a stained glass window.

This object was donated by Richard Landis.
