About Van Renselar

ILLUSTRATIONS FROM LOST STORIES - THE ART OF VAN RENSELAR

Van Renselar has travelled extensively. He grew up in Wales, moving to Little Venice in his teens then on to Bromley, where he now lives and works.
As a contemporary abstract artist Van Renselar is most concerned with form and color as an alternative to slavish reproduction of figurative verisimilitude. It is not necessarily his aim to represent our surroundings or any particular object, he takes ideas from experiences which are visual, cerebral and emotional in nature. Van Renselar's inspiration can as easily be ignited by lines from a song as by an emotional event.

Color is equally as important as the general design and Van Renselar will spend a lot of time perfecting the tone of a particular colour, his primary objectives being to establish harmony both in terms of composition and the use of color. Across the range of pictures there is no defining key of symbols - there is no ‘language’ for the viewer to learn, each picture establishes itself on its own visual merits and the viewer’s interest.

As Van Renselar says, 'I want to use my knowledge of color, image and line to make pictures which involve and intrigue the viewer. I take ideas from around and within me, using intuition and imagination to create a new context. Much of my work stems from my subconscious, where I see actions, events and ideas as particular shapes and colors. It took me a long time to fully realize that not everyone translated the world in this way.”

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION OF VAN RENSELAR'S WORK
Van Renselar's work is created from disparate sources such as drawing (either on paper or directly onto screen), digital photography, painting and scanning. These separate elements are all collaged together on a computer into a digital file which is then output as a giclee and sealed. This methodology makes it possible for the final picture to be different sizes. This form of working is sometimes mistakenly called CGA (computer generated art) - a description Van Renselar rejects categorically. The computer generates nothing at all, it is merely a ‘receptacle’ for collecting the different elements together - collage is a more accurate description.
