Rainer Augur tries to capture the special moments of life on canvas in order to transmit emotions to the viewer.
Objects and people are recorded and reproduced as accurately as possible. Strong colors and the play with light and shadow make scenes appear particularly realistic. In order to draw attention to certain people in his works of art, they are presented in the central perspective and can be grasped and reached by the viewer in the immediate vicinity. As a result, the spark jumps quickly and you feel like you are in the scenery of the pictures.
Rainer Augur’s photo-realistic portraits show people in intimate, very personal moments. They seem to be absorbed in themselves and poetically removed; They seldom look for the viewer’s gaze, but go into their respective situation, detached from the rest of the action. Augur projects the emotions of his protagonists onto the viewer and thereby relaxes an empathetic game of closeness and the fleetingness of the moment.
