Textile, Landis Shift
The six-color palette of this early work includes black and white, along with strong reds, blues, and yellows. The crisply delineated full tones have the sparkle of sharp dark and light contrasts. The halftones, many of which are mixtures of warm and cool shades, are soft, and appear out of focus.
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.
