Contribute towards book on late teacher and artist Roger Ackling

Roger Ackling

Help us fund the printing of 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.
