William Leggett

“The work of William Leggett (b.1980) could be a relic from the past or a comet from the future. Leggett draws on his past employment as a concreter and then carpenter within the mining construction industry to produce original, sophisticated modular forms. Using a variety of tools and mediums and a complex casting process, he references the aesthetic of post-industrial society, scrambling and reconstituting elements of Brutalism, Minimalism and Futurism into a complex visual language that seems familiar to our collective imagined memory.” (Aimee Dodds, curator and freelance writer, 2021)
