“After many years of practice I trust a degree of empathy and understanding have found lodging in me. I am intrigued with the idea of approximations, even approximations of other approximations. I see this all the time as we relate one thing or another to each other.

“Though a work of mine may start with an initial idea I am always certain it is going to change, evolve and go through permutations that may or may not resemble the initial idea. It's exactly this phenomena, this discovery that intrigues me. This makes my responsibility one of crafting work as confidently and coherently as possible, so when viewed it can be accessible; intuitively and subjectively understood.

“Besides being autonomous as works in their own right, there are moments when they may contribute to other work such as sculpture, paintings, or other drawings, something I do with everything I make. 

“The figure has always been important to me, but it hadn't been a part of my vocabulary for a while until sometime last year. There seems to be a psychological component that the numerous eyes imply and question, even challenging the viewer, as to say, ‘I'm looking back at you, what do you see in me?’”

Larry Graeber lives in San Antonio Texas. He has studied painting, sculpture, printmaking, jewelry and film making. Today his focus is on painting, sculpture and works on paper. Larry’s work has been exhibited at Dallas Museum of Fine Arts (Dallas, TX) as well as in a solo show at the McNay Art Museum (San Antonio, TX). In 2014, his work was included in Texas Abstract, Modern/Contemporary, a history and survey of the abstract movement in Texas.
