About The Artwork

On the Beach – 11-12-20 Old Vintage Photo Years ago I saved a vintage picture of a nude on the beach. Origin unknown and my best guess would be from the 1930s or 1940s. The picture was rather grainy and but it showed a great composition of a female body in slanted position. Very simple but also essential. Then years pass by and like an old love you forget about her, only to pop into your memory all of a sudden. On a Diet After my last graphite pencil drawing ‘Hommage to the Entombment of Christ by Caravaggio – 05-12-20’ I was in the mood for keeping things essential again and that is when I remembered this one. It is like after a fine 5 course dinner the one thing left is to go on a diet. The fine thing of such an artistic diet is that the drawing does not become so elaborated. Correspondingly I searched for some powerful lines and plains. Of course the tilted body already granted me a powerful dynamic composition, only for me to keep it as basic as possible. Tonality Because of the strong cast shadow to the right of the body I was not in need of anything fancy in the negative space around the female form. In fact, I kept parts of the contour delineation to the left open and sketched in some midtoned plains in the positive form. Last but not least, I decided to call it ‘On the Beach’ as a token of my minimalist approach. My hope is that the viewer will interpret the beach around her body because of the title. Hopefully the drawing will not have such a dramatic effect on the viewer than the movie bearing the same name.

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.
