Description of the Artwork “The Widow of Aleppo (2019)”

The Widow of Aleppo (2019) Drawng often is called the primary process and I like it so much, brimming over with an ocean of ideas, that I forget about transfering those ideas to the secondary stage: the canvas. There always is something to dust off and in 2017 I used ‘Nude – 03-09-15’ to work out a bigger theme, called ‘The Widow of Aleppo – 18-05-17’, after Rembrandt's painting Jeremiah lamenting Jerusalem's destruction. Since the war in Syria sort of came to an end but the people still suffer, I found it appropiate to do this anew but then in oil. I focused on the strong values in the bodily region while keeping the tonal bandwith in the upper right corner small, thus balancing out between strong tonality and the stronger color saturation to the upper right.

About the artist
Corne Akkers

Corne Akkers, Netherlands

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.
