“I have always been influenced by the city of New Orleans. The patina of age and gentle decay has found its way into the finish of my work. Like the city, sophisticated, fun and always just a little of-center”.
Whether as an art gallery director, sculptor, or designer of fine jewellery, this long-time resident of the “Big-Easy” and his work, have for years been an integral part of the New Orleans art scene. Chosen as the top artist in New Orleans and recipient of the WYES Patron Artist Award, Grüer has also been nationally recognised winning Alpha Awards for his textile and lighting designs.
Grüer’s use of lighting as an expression of his creativity first came about when a friend challenged him to create a chandelier to look like a pair of ear rings he had designed for her. Pleased with the results, he soon began creating other sculptural lighting pieces inspired by his jewellery designs, and for years, these one-of-a-kind custom pieces were commissioned and sold only through a hand full of select art galleries and interior designers. In 2001, Grüer entered into a licensing agreement with Flambeau Lighting to create an ongoing series that would be crafted and finished by artisans, in much the same manner as his original Studio pieces.
Today, Paul Grüer’s “FLAMBEAU Lighting Collection” is a gallery of sculptural, functional art that manifests itself in the form of table lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, pendants, mirrors and sconces. He has created a collection that is certain to add intrigue to any interior design.
