About the artwork
"My Dad was born on the edge of Kabararrji south of Bentinck Island. So he carries the name Kabararrjingathi, his Country – that's why he is called "Gabori”, the English corruption of the place name. There are lots of grasses there called malbaa that the women used to gather to make woven grass bags called mijilda." - Dorothy Gabori

Dorothy Gabori is a Kaiadilt woman who creates vibrant artworks using watercolour, acrylic paint and brightly coloured felt wool. Amanda often collaborates with sisters Dorothy and Elsie. Inspired by Bentinck Island, their ancestral homeland in Queensland’s Gulf of Carpentaria, the sisters were first encouraged to paint by their mother, Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori (c.1924-2015), one of Australia’s most celebrated contemporary artists.
