Richard Landis (American, 1931 - present)
Kandinsky, Mondrian, Morrish tilemakers, and later Anni Albers, influenced Landis's development as an artist. Using loom-controlled weaving, Landis has made intricate fabrics in their wake. In the 1970s he produced a group of double-weave hangings based on all possible combinations of six colors within the fixed grid of warp and weft. A decade later he again used this system but reduced the scale and increased the already mind-boggling complexity. The result is a tightly controlled but thrilling and rhythmic compostion.
