We've chosen all our artists simply because of the calibre of their work – and the fact that we believe they add something special to the language of visual art.

Sally Gabori (c.1924–2015) was a leading contemporary Australian artist of the last decade, and remains one of the most highly regarded and sought after contemporary Australian artists.
