| ILLUSTRATIONS FROM LOST STORIES - THE ART OF VAN RENSELAR
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 form of working is sometimes
mistakenly called CGA (computer generated art) - a description Van
Renselar rejects. As he says, the computer generates nothing at all, it is merely a "receptacle" for collecting the different elements together - collage is
a more accurate description.
Only one giclee is ever made of each picture
All Van Renselar's pictures are produced as a giclee canvas, mounted on a
deep wooden stretcher and ready to hang.
