Furia sunbathing - 16-05-16 (sold) In retrospective this is an ode to my deceased cat who died in November 2016. This is her, reclining in the sun, a couple of months earlier, when she was still going strong. Some said then that it looked dead and that it was a horrible drawing I do not agree. This pose was typical for her and for all cats adoring the sun. Graphite pencil drawing (Pentel 0.5 mm, 3B) on Winsor & Newton Bristol paper (21 x 29.7 x 0.01 cm - A4 format) Artist: Corné Akkers

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.
I teach art (drawing / painting) at Voorburg, Netherlands where I have my second studio next to my first at The Hague, Netherlands, where I live.
