Lorimer's focus on process is central, for his works flirt with abstraction, landscape, portraiture and colour field painting. It would be fair to say that his works would appeal to a painting aficionado who can truly appreciate the finer elements that would perhaps be over-looked by one who couldn't notice the subtle harmony that Lorimer achieves within his works.
