Rob Delamater’s works are created using various forms of printmaking, painting and collage. He often uses antique papers, vintage books and other ephemera in his work.
Each new piece begins with either a sketch or an idea about colors, and it always comes from a direct experience with the real world. His stone-inspired pieces began with a drawing he made of an arrangement of fallen rocks he encountered high up in the Andes of Peru - an act of nature had created a perfect composition. And that fascination has continued with his exploration of the Northern California coast.
“I feel very privileged to live and have my art studio in the NOPA neighborhood of San Francisco. The dramatic clash of nature (water, hills, constantly changing weather) with urban forms (architecture, the angles of the streets) delights my eyes.” – Rob Delamater
