The black and white artwork, “Not … Welcome to Bondi”, depicted a row of heavily armed and masked Australian Border Force officers. Artist Luke Cornish, who has a show on display at the Bondi Pavilion, said the piece was a commentary on Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers.

“The 24 Australian Border Force officers represent the 24 suicides in these detention facilities (onshore and offshore) since 2010,” he wrote on Instagram recently. #ArtAppreciation#gadrc #6 years too long #Local Bondi Grandmothers
