PAINTING IN SERIES is Lorimer’s "thing" and started with Landscapes of Solitude, a story of reconnection with his childhood on the shores of Lake Mississagagon where he now resides. The City2Sunrise series created an eye-opening chronicle of the emotional reality of Cambodia’s orphaned children. The Omo series is a study of the indigenous tribes of one of the most remote places on the planet, the Omo Valley in Ethiopia. Inspired by a desire to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War, the Project Remembrance series took Brian to France and Belgium for an emotional walk through Canadian history. The Shorn Lamb series offers hope to those living amidst the harsh conditions of the Canadian landscape. The latest series - Cape Dorset, had Lorimer traveling to the far north of Canada to capture the Inuit carvers of the arctic.

SO WHAT'S IT LIKE to paint like a child? To find this out Lorimer turned to a very gifted young boy named Hudson Evans. Hudson is Lorimer’s five year old grandson who lives within the spectrum of Autism.

THIS DRAMATIC SERIES of work grew into 36 large paintings commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the First World War.

THIS SERIES IS ABOUT reconnecting with the land, the solitude of living with nature and the beauty of the landscape at the edge of the Canadian Shield.

THE “CITY2SUNRISE” series came to be after receiving a phone call from a childhood friend.
