Itzu Rimmer (b. 1948)

An Israeli painter, his work is characterized by desert colors and scenes and a constant theme of solitary.  His people are genderless and raceless, seemingly on a spiritual journey through the desert.  Rimmer´s landscapes encompass the essence of minimalist graphic design with flat areas of complimenting colors forming mountains populated by geometric clusters of houses and trees.  There is no indication of who lives in these houses if anyone does at all. They are organized memories of familiar places passed but not visited.
 
Rimmer received his first degree from Tel Aviv University in Philosophy and went on to study at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design and the St. Martin´s School of Art in London.  His background in philosophy is clear in his paintings and drawings which are distinguished by blocks of color and lonely figures or houses.
 
Rimmer has taught at numerous art schools in Israel and currently lives and works in Beer Sheva.  Rimmer is a secular Jew but he considers his art to be deeply spiritual; a structured, solitary mindscape of man´s quest to build a personal relationship with God.
