Nude – 01-11-19 Sometimes I find a model so perfectly shaped in round forms that the only way to add value is by means of recreating her through squares and straight lines. I strived for a little distortion so the bodyscape would interact and breath with de negative space. I exaggerated the dark tones in some blocks in order to create the necessary rhythym and diction. Great to deviate from my regular roundism once in a while. Graphite pencil drawing (Sakura, 0.5 mm) on Strathmore Bristol paper (21 x 29.7 x 0.1 cm) (A4-format) Artist: Corné Akkers

1969, born in Nijmegen. My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. Corné employs a variety of styles that all have one thing in common: the ever search for the light on phenomena and all the shadows and light planes they block in. His favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. He states that it’s not the form or the theme that counts but the way planes of certain tonal quality vary and block in the lights. Colours are relatively unimportant and can take on whatever scheme. It’s the tonal quality that is ever present in his work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane. Corné combines figurative work with the search for abstraction because neither in extremo can provide the desired art statement the public expects from an artist. Besides all that, exaggeration and deviation is the standard and results in a typical use of a strong colour scheme and a hugh tonal bandwith, in order to create art that, when the canvas or paper would be torn into pieces, in essence still would be recognizable.
