About the work

Title: Lion
Artist: Paul Hopmeier
Material: Welded metal
Location: Trumper Park, Paddington

Paul Hopmeier’s sculptures are inspired by works of art going back over three millennia, grappling with the physical matter of this quality and its production, as well as possibility in contemporary sculpture. Design is the complete opposite of sculpture. Design is precise, planned and resolved, whereas a sculpture is quite unpredictable. Making sculpture involves continuous feedback, where the processes of looking, thinking and doing are all contributing to the end result in an unconstrained and spontaneous way.
