Roundism – 12-06-18

It is time to put down a kind of art statement for a change. Lately I came to think about my kind of art a lot, inspired by comments and questions like what kind of style it is. I frankly do not know but I know this: I want to lead people through my way of seeing things. I tend to break up complex things like human bodies into sub forms, which is just another classic artistic way of learning the trade. I think I just took this to a different level and all the simplified geometric forms I still find a great way to discover whether beauty and emotion can be captured in essential forms.

Graphite pencil drawing (Pentel 0.5 mm, 3B) on Strathmore Bristol paper (21 x 29.7 x 0.1 cm) - A4 format)
Artist: Corné Akkers
About the Artist 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. more »
