Gordon Crook: A Life in Art

Our doco has been selected for the 2010 International Film Festival. We got post-production funding from the NZ Film Commission to complete the film we have been working on for nearly three years. Gordon Crook is an artist who works across media, from drawing and collage to sophisticated abstract tapestries. He is influenced by the psychoanalysist Freud and Jung and integrates much of their work into his work which explodes with shape, colour and rich textures.

Please get in touch with me regarding Gordon Crook. I am interested in your research and would like to learn more from your perspective. Gordon was my mother's tutor at Central 1962-1965 and retained a special friendship with him until her death in 2007.
With kind regards,

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,
