Rob Nye | Extractionist Painting

Hairfax Studio, 31 Bolinas Rd



Online portfolio:
Rob Nye is the creator and sole practitioner of Extractionist Painting, in the United States and abroad. His subject’s come from imagery he sees embedded within, or etched upon the surface of tiny cast-off objects; stuff most people step over or pass by every day. He transforms these images into stunning large-scale landscapes and portraits.

Extractionist Painting® evolved out of Rob’s life-long struggle with Dyslexia and a love of putting his imagination to good use. He has trained his eye and mind to “see” deeply into the structure and nature of things, often revealing amazing pictures others find hidden or just “plainly obscure”. He employs both modern technology and age-old painterly technique to create his work.
