This year Victoria is teaming up once again with Chris and Loraine of Tale Valley Nursery to create four inspirational and thought provoking figurative sculptures to be exhibited on the Tale Valley Nursery stand at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
Vik was asked to create a piece that illustrates both the joy and sadness experienced by a Momentum family. The focus of these four figurative sculptures were based on support, apprehension, isolation and relief. You can see the support of the mother, apprehension of the farther, isolation of the small child and relief as the older child runs out through the willow fence. The fence represents the divide between the dark and light elements of the garden.
Tale Valley Nursery's original garden exhibition celebrates the work of the Momentum Charity which supports children and the families of children undergoing treatment for cancer.
