Textile, Red + Green

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

Red + Green is composed of imperfect grays—not the neutral grays achieved by combining black and white, but rather de-saturated colors, created through mixtures of the complementary colors red and green—here a range of olive and khaki greens with rosy taupes and ruddy browns.

This object was donated by Richard Landis.
