Alfred Gockel is the featured artist at Seabreeze Jazz Festival World renowned abstract painter Alfred Gockel will be the featured artist at this year’s Seabreeze Jazz Festival, slated for April 13-17 in Panama City, Fla., said Baterbys Art Auction Gallery.
Mr. Gockel’s selection as the featured artist for this year’s Seabreeze Jazz Festival was a hand-in-glove fit, as he approaches his canvas the same way a musician approaches his or her compositions. For centuries, philosophers, artists and musicians have pondered the relationship between the aural (musical) and visual arts. Alfred Gockel simply lives it in his day-to-day life.
In 1910, the Russian abstract master Wassily Kandinsky, one of Gockel’s artistic heroes, wrote, “Color is the key. The eye is the hammer. The soul is the piano with its many chords. The artist is the hand that, by touching this or that key, sets the soul vibrating automatically.” Mr. Gockel applies this philosophy to his every creation, using rich, primary colors in a unique style.
