Born in the years leading up to Australia’s first Aboriginal workers’ strike - the 1946 Pilbara Strike, Mr. Gardiner lived, worked and raised a family in the country’s remote north-west. As a member of the renowned ‘Strelley Mob’, his works are a fascinating insight into the life of Aboriginal pastoral workers and an era of unprecedented social and economic change for Western Australia.

Featuring over 50 artworks from his short but prolific artistic career, He is Myself is a retrospective of the nationally-acclaimed body of work Mr. Gardiner created from South Hedland’s Spinifex Hill Studio

He Is Myself: The Art of Nyaparu (William) Gardiner has been curated and produced by FORM Building a State of Creativity Inc. and Spinifex Hill Studio. The project has been made possible through the Regional Exhibition Touring Boost managed by the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries, supported by Royalties for Regions and delivered by ART ON THE MOVE
