Southern California native Carrie Graber is influenced by the hot summers & warm glowing colors of her home. Her high contrast light and shadow oil paintings feature glamorous scenes of daily life in the Southern California landscape, combining a 19th century mastery of capturing light and illumination on canvas with her own fascination with American mid-century architecture.
Graber’s work has been exhibited around the world, and she is considered among the most talented and well-collected contemporary artists of our time. With her warm tones and exquisite control of illumination creating a perfect composition of light and contrast, Carrie captures the beauty and subtlety of familiar environments, which are often overlooked. Her soft, realistic but also bold approach warms the viewer's' senses and creates a feeling of intimacy.
