Historical information

Artist Si Hummerston’s artwork can be seen in the garden beds leading up to the entrance of Koondoola Community Centre. Bush Walk which consists of three life-size unique figures is made of corten steel and jarrah. Each work uses a 3D shadow box design with 2D cut outs that form a bushland vista inside the body of each piece. These dioramas also include native flora and fauna such as kangaroos and emus that were common to the Koondoola area. The three figures represent the community coming together at this meeting place as well as symbolising the interdependence of people and their environment.
