Corne was born in Zastron, a small rural community in the south eastern free sate province of South Africa on October 6, 1973. Having spent most of his childhood in Ladybrand, a small cosmopolitan town on the border with Lesotho, he moved to pretoria after completing high school to study Fine art at the University of pretoria.
Since 1998 he has been working full time as a visual artist, settling for short periods in various locations, he eventaully moved back to Ladybrand where he lives and work today.
His work has explored several major themes over the years, the most prominent of these an exploration of the interplay and tension between the physical and spiritual world. Be it the conflict between gender and spirituality or the interplay between gender and sexuality. The work has been labelled as homo-erotic art, shock art, Photo-realism, Post-modern trash - yet none of these labels come close to fully describing the highly varied and original work.
