Worimi/Biripi Man This story is about my paternal grandmother so it is a Worimi Story, North New South Wales, Australia, a true Australian story of what happened to Australia's land and its's Indigenous People. Because my Grandmother told me that story, I was able to paint that storyn I'm glad I can hang onto that story through my paintings. I am so glad that I did not have to paint dots to make money.
The Waratah Forest I grew up in a forest with beautiful trees and wildflowers were everywhere. My Grandmother remembers when there were waratahs in our forest. This was because the poachers took them all to sell in Sydney. So I created a forest of giant waratahs in this series of paintings where Aboriginal and Fairies live like Kings. This painting inspired me to paint seriously the body of work on "Black Fairies". Gordon Syron
