Bright colors and graceful motion highlighted by powerful black figures and accents mark Gockel's compositions and his distinctive style. "My aim is to paint harmony," he has said. Inspired by society, Gockel's work can be divided into two major categories: unique art work and graphics. His unique art work is mostly oil on canvas, and in some periods he also creates aquarelles. His graphic art is primarily etchings, screen prints and lithographs. When he has the time, he plays tennis, walks in the German forests with his two dogs, rides with his wife on their Harleys, or drives to their favorite spot at the island Sylt.
