Introduced by Steve Jacobson and Alfred Stockham ARCA RWA
To accompany the collection of fourteen paintings by Alfred Stockham which are showing until 22 February in Through Different Eyes: ways of seeing landscape at Sladers Yard, we are delighted to be able to show you a very special film made last year by artist Steve Jacobson and Alex Kirby to celebrate Alfred’s life and work. Longtime Lecturer and Head of Fine Art at Bristol Polytechnic (now the University of the West of England) Alfred inspired generations of art students but, in addition to that, his paintings are admired and collected by artists and art lovers throughout the UK. His technique, in particular his use of colour and form, are truly exceptional producing paintings of intense atmosphere and poetry.
