About the artist 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.

My search is for the play of light and dark. Life and matter are defined by those two. Regardless of style the light is the leading lady in all my visual stories. Darkness is her dance partner.
