Roundism – 19-10-19 by Corne Akkers
It was time to return to my roundism style and the position of this one inspired to me show the flow her hips and leg suggest. I extrapolated some of forms outside her bodyscape into roundish shapes and kept the foot realistic so the viewer will be tricked into believing the human forms whilst consuming the abstract extrapolations at the same time.Graphite pencil drawing (Pentel 0.5 mm, 3B) on Canson Bristol paper (21 x 28.8 x 0.1 cm)Artist: Corné Akkers
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....
