LAST WEEK MAKE.IT LONDON EXHIBITED A CREATIVE INTERPRETATION PIECE OF FERNAND LEGER'S ART WORK AT THE VM & DISPLAY SHOW.
In case you missed the show... here is what happened!
This picture was taken in 1926, it shows Fernand Leger sitting with his work titled Three Women. (The Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley).
This painting, which Leger came to regard as one of the two or three masterpieces of his career, was the starting point that inspired us to create our sustainable and hand-made stall display this year.
Make.it reinterpreted 'Three Women' by creating different layers and by playing with the colours of the material used, transforming this 2D painting into a unique 3D piece.
The material used to make this sculpture is a specialised recycled plastic sheet, made from ground down yogurt pots and bottle tops making it 100% sustainable plastic sheets. https://www.durat.com/home/
