Artist Biography
Conway Ginger hails from Docker River and moved to Mparntwe (Alice Springs) in 2004. He is a passionate football supporter, music lover and an eager artist and joined the Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists in 2012. Conway’s lively sense of humour is evident in his artwork. Fresh and vivid lines communicate his passions and inspirations, drawn from everyday life.

Conway is known for his ink and wash works on paper which have been well-received in the Australian art world- their immediacy and honesty speaking to many. Since he began exhibiting in 2012, Conway has had many solo exhibitions and his works have featured in Art Collector and As We Are publications. It is an exciting time for Conway whose expanding body of work progresses through new techniques and artistic mediums such as watercolours, fabric, textiles and print-making.

About Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists 

The Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists studio is the first in Australia to occupy the intersection between supported studios and Aboriginal Art Centres. The studio supports artists from communities across the Central Desert region – from Kaltukatjara (Docker River) to Yuendumu. Their painting process is an expression of self and connection to home country – an act that upholds personal and cultural identity.

About Gesture
Aboriginal Bush Traders is proud to present Gesture, an exhibition foregrounding the artistic practice of Indigenous artists with disability in the Northern Territory. Featuring the work of artists from Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists (Central Desert), Free Space Studio (Darwin) Ngaruwanajirri Inc. (Tiwi) and the work of Dion Beasley (Tennant Creek), Gesture speaks to bold mark making and the presence of the artist’s hand. In another sense, gesture also speaks to forms of communication that are non-verbal and the importance of those forms for communities of people with disability.
