South African artist and wood sculptor, is a true child of Africa.
His work displays a reverence for all Nature and respect for the forces of the elements. Corne’s work is typified by his love of his medium. He is passionate about retaining the character of the wood he uses – which range from the common poplar to the mighty yellowwood, fetched from the forests of Knysna.
Each work preserves the history of the tree it was created from – the strong roots, the upward reaching branches, the cruelly snapped trunk, all are incorporated into the finished art-work, bearing testimony to the elements of Nature whose hand first created the art which Corné merely makes visible.
