The exhibition will illustrate the development of her practice, including early paintings featured in the 2006 ‘Xstrata Coal Emerging Indigenous Art Award’ exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery, her more abstract works of the following three years, her large collaborative works with other Kaiadilt women, collaborative works painted with her daughters, and her almost monochromatic recent paintings and works on paper.

Mrs Gabori’s depictions of her homeland are abstract in nature, but retain representational elements which map traditional country and cultural identity in monumental paintings such as "_Dibirdibi Country_:http://www.qagoma.qld.gov.au/collection/indigenous_australian_art/sally_gabori 2008.
