Occasional Papers -
a non-profit publisher- presents the book Roger Ackling: Between the Lines.
This book is "the first comprehensive overview of the
work and teaching of the late British artist Roger Ackling
(1947-2014). Through writings by former students, colleagues,
contemporaries and friends, the book details Ackling's unique teaching
style and discusses the quiet beauty of his work, which he made using
the same method of burning sunlight on wood for more than thirty five
years. As a longstanding and revered teacher at Chelsea College of Art
and other art schools, Ackling influenced generations of students and
peers, broadening their horizons through a mixture of insightful
questions, humour and mischievousness.
Edited by Emma Kalkhoven,
with contributions by Sylvia Ackling, Thomas A Clark, Tony Cragg, Juan
Cruz, Hamish Fulton, Neil Gillespie, John Haldane, Dean Hughes, Florence
Ingleby, Alan Johnston, Richard Long, Mariko Mori, Trevor Sutton and Mo
Throp, among others."
