Alfred Gockel is like a musician whose instrument is the paintbrush. He creates his pieces like a jazz musician, but he performs with paint on a canvas. His compositions are a unique combination of colors and forms, clearly influenced by such great artists as Miro and Picasso, but with a brightness and energy that is all Gockel's own.
Probably my favorites among his many works are those that actually involve music. Like this piece here, "Stroking the Keys."
