Mirdingkingathi Juwarnda SALLY GABORI
The incomparable Sally Gabori’s painterly interpretations of her Bentinck Island home combine Country, colour and the artist’s mind’s eye to portray places of deep personal significance to the artist.
Her signature application of vivid colour and expressive brushstrokes brilliantly depicts her island Country and impart a real and intimate sense of who Gabori was and where she was from. Her immense legacy was honoured in the major retrospective exhibition Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori: Dulka Warngiid – Land of All at the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, in Brisbane, Australia from 21 May – 28 August 2016 and at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne from 23 September 2016 – 21 January 2017.
In 2022 Gabori will be honoured with a major solo survey exhibition at the distinguished Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, France.
