A dynamic, dramatic depiction of an ancient story

6799-L-SG-0311Sally Gabori has taken the art world by storm since her introduction to paint and canvas in 2005, and is one of the most highly regarded and sought after contemporary Australian artists.

Her work has recently been exhibited at the prestigious Melbourne Art Fair 2012, the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair 2012 and the Korea International Art Fair 2012 (13 – 17 September). Awarded winner of the inaugural Gold Award for contemporary Australian painting earlier this year, Sally Gabori continues to receive accolades, having been named as finalist in both the Togart Contemporary Art Award 2012 and the Geelong Contemporary Art Prize 2012.

This latest acquisition came via Tim Melville Gallery in Auckland and is a stunning example of Sally’s dynamic, dramatic depiction of her country. It is extraordinary how she achieves such drama with such a minimal palette and large blocks of colour. Gentle pinks sit next to acid yellow and big bold black and white.
