Recollections, a series that plays with the tension between memories, the “return to home”, and the actual experienced past, is an idea that I explore through the renderings of the family unit. Nostalgia comes from the Greek word nostos, meaning “to return to home” and algos, meaning “pain”. Before the rise of pathological anatomy and bacteriology made it less credible, medically; nostalgia was considered a “disorder of the imagination. Through time, nostalgia’s meaning became a more generalized reaction to the sad fact that, unlike space, time cannot be returned. I initially began with source imagery of found slides and photos of people I find at flea markets, second hand stores or from my own family’s collection. I take the source imagery and change elements to signify specific moments that could be seen as memories that are remembered or forgotten. I aim to represent nostalgic scenes that may relay a tension, sorrow or humor that could be constructed memories or actual experienced events. The exact narrative may be forgotten or unknown, but the complex projection of an idealized story that I find intriguing may serve to reflect a feeling or memory for another person.

Grauer explores the construction of identity, how to memorialize objects and individuals through a contemporary documentarian approach to painting. Examples of the present becoming the past so quickly, he focuses on the documentation of time, memory and imagination and how through these aspects he may occupy the past, present and future. He is interested in the observation of that evolution of time and how it affects the artifice of the presentation of self, and finally, how by the act of creating a painting, the art itself acquires an identity and timeline of its own. Grauer has garnered success showing work internationally, including: being awarded a residency at Jentel, Blue Mountain Artist Residency and shortlisted for the 2015 Wells Art Contemporary Award. He has exhibited with the Royal Society of Portrait Painters at the Mall Galleries in London and the Salmagundi Club in NYC. Currently, he is showing with several galleries throughout the Hudson Valley and continues his practice of art and happiness.
