Textile, Jewels

This is a Textile. It was created by Richard Landis.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Mark Hayden as part of Color Decoded: The Textiles of Richard Landis.

It is dated 1984. Its medium is mercerized cotton double weave.

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.

It is credited Mark and Sara Hayden.
