Barney Ellaga

Barney Ellaga is a senior law man of the Alawa community in the Northern territory. He has intimate knowledge of his traditional homelands and it is this subject, Alawa country, which his work most represents.

In a response to the land of his birth Barney uses extraordinary colour compliments to contour Alawa terrains. His fresh and dynamic approach gives impact and power to these abstract pieces, and as a consequence his work is in high demand.

Since the introduction of acrylic paints and canvas Aboriginal art has transgressed from traditional symbols representing ceremonial ritual and story to an international phenomenon exploring the realms of contemporary abstraction. Barney has mastered this introduced medium.

Sadly Barney passed away in 2015.
