THE ART OF VAN RENSELAR - ILLUSTRATIONS FROM LOST STORIES
Van Renselar is a digital artist who paints directly on screen and produces each picture as a one-off giclée. Only one giclée will ever be made of each work, each painting is an original as no 'editions' or 'prints' will ever be made.
He is primarily concerned with illustrating his own imaginative view of life using composition, colour and an ever-evolving form of symbolism to create intriguing and strikingly different art. He takes ideas from experiences which are visual, cerebral and emotional in nature.
As he says, "I want to use my knowledge of colour, 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 images and colours. As some music can take on a different meaning after it has left the composer's pen, I encourage the viewer to create their own story about the meaning of the picture.”
He was born in 1949 and lives near London, UK.
