Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori was one of the leading contemporary Australian artists of the last decade. Though her career only began in 2005, she has since taken the art world by storm. Sally Gabori joined the stable of artists at Alcaston Gallery in 2006.

Sally Gabori’s immediate love of paint and the full spectrum of colour offered to her triggered an outpouring of ideas including depicting her country and her ancestral stories. Whilst her works could be recognised as abstraction, they are actually land and seascapes and her fascination with colour seems as significant as the content itself. A closer look, the country, colour and mind’s eye combine to impart to the viewer a real and intimate sense of who Sally Gabori is and where she is from. The artist’s raw talent and appeal has reached far and wide, resulting in Sally Gabori being one of the most highly regarded and sought after contemporary Australian artists.

Sally Gabori has also made her mark internationally, with her works being exhibited in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, USA, Korea, the Netherlands and Italy. Sally Gabori’s work features in important collections and major institutions in Australia and abroad including the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Queensland Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, New Zealand the Musée du Quai Branly, France, the Museum of Contemporary Aboriginal Art, the Netherlands and the ARTIZON Museum (formerly Bridgestone Museum of Art), Tokyo, Japan.
