Bob Senesac lives in Archer, Florida, where he operates his custom furniture and cabinet shop and a small studio. A photographer since attending Ohio University in the 70ís he is combining his love of wood and photography in some of his recent works.
The photographic mono prints are a unique print made by using a time honored process, the monotype and photography. He wanted to produce an image which was more than a photograph, but not one which was done with digital tools. The result is an image which is a hybrid between a painting and photograph. He feels the wood frames he builds for the large, multi plate prints are not just a frame but an extension of the print itself. He selects the wood and style of each frame to best fit a specific print. Most of the wood used in the frames is cut locally, stacked, and air dried. The use of wormy long leaf pine and free edge cherry in some frames add to the over all uniqueness of each piece.
Bobís work is always evolving, as evidenced by his recent, Bamboozled and Visual Vortex series. Expanding into 3-D mixed media, combining wood, glass and other non traditional media with photography is a natural progression.
