AMANDA JANE GABORI, DOROTHY GABORI, 'Our Mother's Country', 2019, Acrylic on Belgian Linen, 195.5 x 196.5 cm
"This artwork is about our Mum, Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori. She was taken away from her Country but she never lost her creative roots. Her art is bright and light, just like the land she was born in, Mirdidingki, on the south side of Bentinck Island. This is her Country, where the Big Lake is."
