Today I saw the Sally Gabori (Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda) exhibition at QAG ‘Dulka Warngiid’ – Land of All. Every year I do an interesting job in Brisbane at the International Convention Centre, chairing a medical conference. I usually take the opportunity to visit the Queensland Art Gallery the day before. This time I was very fortunate to see the retrospective exhibition of Sally Gabori’s work. If you get a chance I really recommend seeing it, so fascinating to see the progression and ‘maturity’ of her work over only about a decade – she only started to paint at age 81 years. Some of the paintings are collaborative with her sisters and it is possible to see the different approaches of the various painters. The colours are sublime and extraordinary and the freedom of brush stroke is fabulous and inspiring to this aspiring artist.
