portraits stripped to essence are Mr Grausman's forte. Concentrating
on volume and form, eliminating inconsequential details, he models
faces of expressive vitality by emphasizing their structure and contours.
His surfaces are integral to the work: metal, pewter, aluminum, and
stainless steel in gray tones that add to the distinction of these
streamlined but powerful presences, which translate well into monumental
Grausman's drawings of nudes, eloquent essays in pure line, are, like
his sculptures, distinctive for what they leave out.
