The Widow of Aleppo (2019). Corné Akkers Corné Akkers Kunstwerken
   
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.
