About painting, Brimer says, “I have always loved the ocean and I love creating images along this threshold between the seen and unseen world. It can be a spiritual metaphor. It is where I meditate in solitude. I go to the California shoreline as often as possible. Painting allows me to have a time alone in the power of nature and to gaze at its beauty. I love to paint quickly outdoors in order to make the impression of what I am experiencing, immediately finding its way to the canvas. Also, studio work allows a longer periods to ponder new ideas and work out some bigger themes.� Born in Long Beach, CA in 1962, Rich Brimer has his roots well planted in the west. It was during hunting trips with his father and going on family camping trips, Brimer gained a respect and love for the outdoors. He is an artist who loves using oils both in the studio as well as painting outdoors. Rich feels strongly about creating artwork that not only shows the beauty of creation, but also art that stirs the spirit. He is a dedicated, passionate artist who has found out that takes hard work to make a difference, but it is well worth the effort. His art studio is located at Carmel Visual Arts where he also serves as Director. The California Lutheran University graduate (B.A. Fine Art) is also Past President of the Arts Council of the Conejo Valley and Studio Channel Islands Art Center. He also serves as the chair of the Monterey County chapter of the California Art Club.
