Christine Reimer lives and paints in Victioria, BC. Since completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Victoria, she has been primarily a landscape artist working in her studio with acrylics on small canvases. Her subjects have usually been coastal and rural scenes, vineyards and orchards, including lush views based on photgraphs from her travels to such places as Provence in France, Tuscany in Italy, and the wine country of the Okanagan Valley and California. This year, however, Reimer's solo exhibition at Main Street Gallery in Sidney on Vancouver Island focuses exclusively on local Pacific coastal views. As indicated by reproductions of her paintings on her website, ChristineReimer.ca, her style is consistently painterly, loose, casual and even mildly cartoon-like. Composition is traditional, colours vibrant, with a domestic atmosphere.
