Robert Pelegrin - artist

Robert Pelegrin (1949-2007) landscapes consist of rocks and cliffs that look like anthropomorphic forms. Tension and urban energy, from the Midwest, is integrated into the American Southwest mountainscapes. He had an aesthetic appreciation of nature that runs throughout his works.

The monotype was his main medium of expression. This printmaking technique allowed him to spontaneity but also gave him control; he created textures, soft lines, and tonality of light and darks. Robert said, “I enjoy working in monotypes, because of the interplay of spontaneity and split-second decision-making…this aspect, and the fact that there is a limed amount of time to complete a work, provides a challenge.” The legacy of his art is kept alive through his family and patrons that have purchased his work.

Robert’s work is on exhibit at The Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, 1st floor through the middle of June. The works are for sale. To purchase work or questions, please contact: june.hund@case.edu or call 216-368-0722.
