In 2013 Timothea from Lump was awarded the City of Stonnington and Bank of Melbourne Award for the outdoor sculpture entry “Clasp”. The entire crew from Lump were totally chuffed at the win because everyone had played a role in bringing the sculpture to life. This year Chris is displaying "Tricycle" a piece inspired by the exploration of minimalist sculpture trends in the 1960’s, the Tricycle Sculpture is made from aluminium and finished with a matte black surface.
At Lump we know too well how much hard work goes into designing and making a sculpture and getting it out into the world for public viewing. What's more, we understand the enormous effort it takes to run a small business. So it seemed perfect to inject the winning funds from the “Clasp” back into the exhibition in support of both the artists and the traders.
The Toorak Village Sculpture Exhibition is an annual event that takes place in the heart of Toorak Village. Here, the arts and business come together to form a unique experience.
During the month of May and the first two weeks of June, Toorak Village Traders open their shop windows, arcades and footpaths to display contemporary sculptural works. Directed by Tony Fialides and curated by Malcolm Thomson, Tracey Cammock and the Toorak Village Traders Association will officially open the Exhibition on the 1st of May at the Tok H Centre.
