Roundism – 11-01-20
Of late I was busy painting ‘The Restoration of Bettie Page’ and since a month or so drawings do not sprout from my pencil that often. But sometimes you have to let the painting be for a day and return to drawing process.
The commissioneer wanted to have me combine roundism to Kadinsky’s symbolism. Since I feel my symbolism (in my new painting and in my recent drawings) is leading me to the invention of a new language in which I can express myself eloquently, this drawing felt like a relief from my Bettie project and resulting into something new.
Having my model over a certain evening my mind was set to portray a matrix of symbols of the implicite order (David Bohm) meeting or even defining the explicite order. The tonal gradients subtely shifting, some abrupt some gradient, represent life itself in all its expressions.

About Corne 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.
