I was very happy with the result of my latest session with my favorite model. She showed great triangular structures and edges. Besides that I have her use plenty of massage oil to get shiny effects on her dark Indian skin hues, showing abrupt tonal threshold values that I could use to get grip on body mass and forms. The result is a powerful clairobscural roundistic drawing. Between her arms there is a void of complete darkness because creation has not affected this region yet.

About corneakkers

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. 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.
