Daniel Barkley’s rich powerful canvases present contemporary people as allegorical figures, innocent in their anatomically faithful and unabashed nudity. Once the narrative of the canvases are absorbed, the viewer is immediately struck by the technical mastery of Barkley’s brush work. His talent speaks of years of experience and practice. But Barkley is still a young man ... and that only adds to the calibre of his talent.
