Rob Delamater

Raised in Southern California, Delamater had the influence of both the coast and the desert from an early age. He spent more than 25 years in San Francisco before moving to Rockridge. The dramatic range of nature with urban forms of the Bay Area have had significant influence on his work. Each new piece begins with either a sketch or an idea about color. And it always comes from a direct experience with the real world. His stone-inspired pieces began with a drawing 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. His work is created by using various forms of printmaking (hand-painted monoprints in water-based paints on archival paper), painting and collage. He thinks his most successful pieces combine simplicity and the Japanese concept of "wabi sabi" (finding beauty in imperfection).
