On contemplative abstractions

"...I don't say that our isolation was meritorious, or that the people in general should know no language but their own. Yet the meek ignorance has these advantages. We did not travel for adventures, nor for company, but to voodle with our own eyes... and even in my own land, the things in which I have been least deceived are those which I have learned as their spectator..."

To paraphrase the topic further: ...Travel is thus not a release from but a luxuriating into the same rapt stare that is the medium of Sam Renseiw's daily life: And he glories in it, calling the style of voodling through foreign lands as a mode of " contemplative abstractions from the world"; Naturally, he has nothing but praise for the advantage of this abstraction.

"..It seems that, today - utilising the large output of the closed form, with the support of new ways of visual education, and with the new organisation of resources - right now we are able to begin the creation of a new organic art of our time, the Voodling art that is compositionally based on the open form. It will awake the desire of existence for every one of us, it will help us to define ourselves and find ourselves in the space and time in which we live. (This new art of Voodling) will become the space which suits our complex and yet not unexplored psyche, and it will become so because we will constitute the organic elements of this art. We will walk through it, and not around it. Diverse individuality, in all its randomness and bustling, will become the wealth of this space, its participant."

Reflecting on Oscar Hansen's dynamic manifesto, Sam Renseiw concocted an organic voodle from recent slices of footage, keeping the form open. As manifestos and creative environments have a certain tendency to stiffen into institutionalised dogma (as if obscured by clouds) when not shaken once in while, continued, genuine efforts to unclutter, are essential.

On oblique displays of jungle

"...The voodle is also an allegory of the senses...I think that there’s almost no subject that you can’t treat with some humor, no matter how benign it can seem. What I also am sometimes looking for in my voodles is a sort of attraction-repulsion thing, where the stuff is beautiful to begin with until you notice that some sort of ambiguous thing is about to happen or is in the middle of happening."

Just casually passing by in the new year, Sam Renseiw caught glimpses of an elaborated jungle fever in a crowded week-end set-up.
