As you enter the 4.5ha grounds of Gomboc Gallery Sculpture Park, you are welcomed by a number of gigantic sculptures, some by owner RM (Ron) Gomboc himself and others by highly praised artists from Australia and around the world.
Just 30 minutes out of Perth in Middle Swan, Ron and Terrie Gomboc have been operating the park and studio for almost 30 years.
The grounds feature many fascinating, original sculptures, while the two-storey art gallery houses five exhibition rooms filled with other outstanding works of art.
Over the years, Gomboc Gallery Sculpture Park has helped many artists acquire both private and public commissions.
One of Ron’s recent achievements was a commission for the Royal Flying Doctor Service’s new administration building and emergency hospital in Broken Hill. He created a 4.5m polished stainless steel sculpture called The Guardian.
Fortescue Metals Group appointed Ron’s largest commission to date – a 12m-tall steel sculpture called Northern Spirits, honouring those who have lost their lives in the mining industry.
Winning a number of awards over the years for its contribution to West Australian arts, Gomboc Gallery has earned a reputation as an international cultural hub and continues to help launch the careers of many local artists.
