Sculp­ture cel­e­bra­tion

Ellenbrook Advocate - - FRONT PAGE -

MID­DLE Swan artist Ron Gom­boc has show­cased his 18th sculp­ture at Bondi’s Sculp­ture by the Sea this week.

The owner of Gom­boc Gallery Sculp­ture Park first ex­hib­ited his work af­ter be­ing awarded a spot in the 1999 ex­hi­bi­tion.

He said his work since then had evolved but had al­ways been about telling a story.

“It’s amaz­ing how quick time has gone by since my first Sculp­ture by the Sea,” he said.

“Most of my work rep­re­sents re­la­tion­ships, the cy­cle of life and hu­man con­di­tion.

“This sculp­ture is more ab­stract than my nor­mal work and rep­re­sents two fig­ures em­brac­ing and an arch in the mid­dle of what keeps us sep­a­rate and to­gether, and the phys­i­cal and spir­i­tual build­ing of a re­la­tion­ship.”

Gom­boc has also been in­vited to ex­hibit at next year’s Cottes­loe Sculp­ture by the Sea and would be the only Aus­tralian artist who had ex­hib­ited at every ex­hi­bi­tion since it started.

Work by Ron Gom­boc can be viewed at Gom­boc Gallery Sculp­ture Park on James Road in Mid­dle Swan.
