Sabrina Nungarrayi Gibson
Sabrina Nangala Robertson was born in Alice Springs Hospital, the closest hospital to Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290 north-west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. Sabrina grew up in Yuendumu and went to the local school. She now alternates between living in Yuendumu and Alice Springs.
She is one of five the daughters of the acclaimed Aboriginal artist Dorothy Napangardi, who died in a tragic accident in 2013. Since the 1990’s, while often in the company of her mother, Sabrina pursued and developed a creative visual language all of her own, one which consists of a fascinating blend of stylised experimentation and ancient narrative.
She has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation since 2005. She paints her father’s Jukurrpa or Dreaming, stories passed down to her by her father and her father’s father before her for millennia. These stories relate to her traditional land, Pirlinyarnu (Mt Farewell), its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. Sabrina has exhibited in Australia and in France.
