Barney is a senior Aboriginal Law-Man within the Alawa Community.

While his art has been exhibited in group exhibitions since 1989 it was not until 1999 that he deemed it appropriate for him to promote and exhibit a major body of his work because of his important community and cultural responsibility.

The seniority and importance of his stories is evident in the brilliant, saturated colours and dynamic compositions he creates.

Barney's paintings are Alawa, every stroke articulates intimate knowledge of the his traditional country
