Exhibited

''Significant Paintings'', GRANTPIRRIE, Sydney, 2002 ('This body of work, as always, reflects the land and its spirits, both good and the bad. His land is drenched in the atrocities of white settlement and the history of his own people. He tells the stories of massacres and dreamings, of caryards and emus. There is a certain urgency of story telling apparent in the vigorous brush strokes, as though he is compelled to speak', G. Serisier in the exhibition catalogue).
(probably) Art Gallery of New South Wales, ''True Stories: Art of the East Kimberley'', Sydney, 2003.
