About the Art
Roundism - 26-05-17 by Corne Akkers
During my lessons as a teacher I tell my students there is no end to perfection and one never can tell when a painting or drawing is finished. The artist sets the rules but what are rules, like time, but rules based upon other rules and when you're on the front of everything, what rules should an artist create for him or herself and are they good enough to be acknowledged by others? This is the essence of my art Iand I portrayed this principle by curves heading for straight vertical or horizontal lines and approaching them, never touching them, ending in a singularity.
About Corne Akkers
1969, born in Nijmegen. My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. I employ 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. My favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. It is 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 is the tonal quality that is ever present in my work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane. I combine 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....
