A look again at The Stefan Knapp article first posted here in January 2012:
Enamelled steel panel by Stefan Knapp at Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead.
At New Year, Tilly and I were looking at late 20th century abstract paintings at the Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead. One large piece in particular caught our eye and took us by surprise as it wasn’t actually a painting at all but an enamelled steel panel about 1.3 metres square. Intrigued, we asked the curator if he could tell us more about it. The artist was Stefan Knapp 1921-1996 and this piece, produced in the 1960's is one of his Ariel Landscapes. The inspiration for these came from his time taking reconnaissance photos whilst an RAF fighter pilot during WWII.
I've created a new photogallery to showcase recent work by members. (Gallery/Members Gallery/2011 Gallery).
Check out the Gallery for pictures of Jill Leventon's corrugation and pressforming workshop for Region 3 on 5th November 2011.
Jill will also be running one of our workshops at Conference 2012. This time on "High Firing"
Check out the new Gallery with pictures from the Region 1 and 2 weekend workshop at Leith Lapidary club.
