Videos featuring artist Gordon Syron

There have been quite a few video and TV programs created which look at the story of Gordon Syron, how he started painting and established himself as one of the fathers of modern urban Aboriginal painting in the 1970s and 1980s.  We are gradually collecting up these video clips and listing them here so that people can be aware of what is behind Gordon’s unique art, and how it led to the creation of the Keeping Place collection with photographer Elaine Kitchener Perot, who later became his wife.
