About The Artwork

Neo Deco – 05-01-24 What 2024 May Bring With this oil painting ‘Neo Deco - 05-01-24’ I kick off 2024 artistically. Brimming over with ideas it is exciting to see what this year may bring. The Neo Deco Series is expanding gradually and I think I am successfully integrating several aspects of former styles. There is Roundism of which I am the inventor. That one was a culmination of my realist, impressionist and cubist opinions. Elements of Art Deco are the latest addition to the mix. However, in retrospective I see I already incorporated loads of decorative patterns in artworks before. Throughout last year I started to get used to this new title. That is because I think it describes my artistic endeavours best. Roundism was once invented as a badge of honor really. Someone once thought ‘New Cubism’ to be a bit pretentious. Live Imitates Art My motivation of forging all these isms into one is starting to make sense more and more. The other day a phrase popped into my head: ‘bring back the style’. Maybe it has got something to do with class and style. Have you ever wondered why there are so many products of high value styled to the max? Somehow that’s not often reflected in visual art. Instead, we’re confronted with rubble piles as art. Perhaps you remember I wrote about this phenomenon before. Art imitates life these days. Surely that would have irritated Oscar Wilde immensely. He stated that life imitates art. I quote: “the self-conscious aim of Life is to find expression. Art offers it certain beautiful forms through which it may realise that energy”. For everyone who agrees to this I hereby offer refuge by means of this painting. Oil on linen (60 x 80 cm) Artist: Corné Akkers

1969, born in Nijmegen. My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. Corné employs 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. His favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. He states that it’s 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’s the tonal quality that is ever present in his work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane. Corné combines 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.
