Gordon Crook

I'm currently working on a documentary about Wellington artist, Gordon Crook.
He has an amazing body of work, from drawings and collage to large paintings, tapestries and banners.

He came to NZ in 1972 after teaching art and design at the Central School of Art in London and also St Martins School of Art - now a merged entity known as Central.

He has been in Wellington since then and exhibited regularly ever since. He continues to work in his studio in Te Aro and you can see his latest work, Smoke, on the MaryNewton Gallery website.

Hey ladies and gents,

I am contacting you on behalf of Silver Screen Pictures, Australia. I am promoting and encouraging people to take a look at a documentary we produced entitled "Not a Willing Paritcipant" please see synopsis below.

It is an interesting watch and some of your followers may like to take a look :). The more hits and ratings we get on the site the better! Please follow the link to view-



Brisbane Indigenous artist Vernon Ah Kee has been selected as one of four Australian artists to exhibit at the Venice Biennale as a part of Once Removed a show which represents Australia's selection at this prestigious world stage. The Venice Biennale is acknowledged as the most significant and important showcase event in the international contemporary visual arts community. The chance to exhibit at this prominent event is a career and life changing experience for any artist. Vernon Ah Kee's evocative work challenges past and current injustices to aboriginal people and delves into beach culture and race issues surrounding the 2005 Cronulla riots. How will his work be received by the rest of the world?

Please take a look and feel free to froward to friends and family,

Thankyou for your time,
