Gordon Barney Sold at Auction Prices

b. 1945 -

Gordon Barney was born at Alice Downs Station in the East Kimberley in 1944. He now lives at Norton Bore Community, Via Turkey Creek with his wife, the well know and extremely talented International artist Shirley Purdie. Gordon and Shirley are both joint Chairpersons there.

Gordon is well known throughout the region as a stockman, and worked on many stations, including Springvale, Chinaman’s Garden country and Alice Downs, which form a great deal of the content of his paintings.

He commenced painting in 1998 with Shirley and like his wife, favours the thick, crusty ochre medium. His depictions of the hills and rugged country he worked quickly became noticed by collectors, and his relatively short painting career has been extremely successful.
