Recent Portraits

2018-2020

Grauer captures the likeness and the personality of an individual through the observation and documentarian approach to contemporary portraiture.


Lost & Found

2017

This series began when Grauer took notice of the everyday objects that surrounded him. One by one, he set them down on an old matte board and arrange simple settings to paint from life. It evolved into a daily practice. 

Recollections

2016

Recollections, a series that plays with the tension between memories, the "return to home", and the actual experienced past, is an idea Grauer explores through the renderings of the family unit.
