About the work


Thundi, 2010, is an excellent example of Gabori’s most recent works, which are nearly always painted in palettes of rich and interwoven colour. As with many of Gabori’s paintings, Thundi, is her depiction of the place where her father was born, by a river close to the site after which this work is named. Gabori depicts the changing landscape, light and colour of her salt water home, from the sandbars to the sea kelp which is often disturbed by local dugongs that inhabit the waters surrounding Bentinck Island.
