About The Artwork

Sans titre - 27-09-18 In this drawing I tried to capture the edgy character of U.S. actress Talullah Bankhead and still bring softness to her face. I am captured by this goal I have put myself to harmonize a bunch of previous styles like impressionism, luminism, cubism, pointillism, expressionism and realism, and forge them into one. I am not specifically sure about this one. Perhaps the color saturation is a little too much although I hatched a lot of complementary color hatched strokes next to eachother. I realize it is hard work but the alternative, doing nothing and lead a comfortable life, is much worser.

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.
