This piece opposite is a relief of flat panels assembled by emerging contemporary artist Richard Graham, with the form dervied from a reinterpretation of a Fernand Leger painting, titled ‘Three Women’ made in 1926.
Richard makes upcycled and sustinable assemblage from his studio in Kings Cross, London and is interested in using the waste of the urban environment, to recreate art history references, as well as other more personal stories that represent his environment of today.
The material used to make this is a specialised recylced material called Durat. Durat is a unique, sustainable solid surface material which contains recycled post industrial plastics and is 100% recyclable. Fernand Leger was interested in using the urban environment as a reoccuring theme in his paintings, often contrasting the mechanical and the natural.
Graham studied art history and mastered in creative and critical theory, and has recently published an illustrated art book with Thames and Hudson. In 2009 he won “State-of-the-art” drawing competition in aid of Princess Trust Charity at the Royal College of Art and has several artworks in the Paul Josefowitz collection, as well as several public hospital collections.
