Aluminium art shines

Gomboc’s striking piece joins other artworks from 69 national and international artists in the 11th annual exhibition, which runs until March 23 on the Cottlesloe beach foreshore.

A member of the exhibition’s Decade Club, Gomboc’s aluminium sculpture is called Cycle of life ” living.

He said the cycle of life and life’s journey was the inspiration for his piece.

‘I have been working on a series of sculptures that relate to the journey we go on in life; key components are our natural state and beauty,’ Gomboc said.

‘I’ve used aluminium in my work for more than two decades, both in casting and fabricating sculpture, and I love the ease at which I work with the metal and its final polished state,’ he said.

An estimated 220,000 people, including 6000 students, are expected to converge on Cottesloe during the free expo, from serious art-lovers and collectors to members of the public looking to enjoy the sculptures.
