Painting by Geoffrey Rockwell ’82

In July 2016, Geoff began work on a large scale mural of Suffield Academy’s campus for the lobby of Brewster Hall. His intention is to create a timeless vision connecting Suffield’s historic past to generations of present and future. With symbolic meaning to its size, proportions, and selective vanishing points, Geoff’s composition invites viewers to experience the 23’ by 10’ painting as if hovering within its vastly spanned landscape. Included in his design are items such as the ice rink formerly located adjacent to the tennis courts, the oddly structured backstop he remembers from the baseball field, the crow’s nest platform above the football field, the historic faculty house located on main street aside Gay Manse, and the Theater Barn behind Gay Mansion. While the school’s physical plant has changed a lot since Geoff graduated in 1982, he acknowledges its evolution has occurred within the context of tradition. “I wanted to create an image that all generations of Alumni could relate to and enjoy,” he says. “Some of these buildings no longer exist, but the memory of them has not vanished. As I paint them I remember the families and friends who inhabited these spaces, unearthing my own personal experiences and lasting emotions. On the other hand, several buildings are renovations or additions to campus and those memories are now just being made by the community. So you see I am representing memories of various eras to be experienced as one and enjoyed by all. It’s my way of representing a school and community whose rich heritage is transcendental and timeless.”
