Rieser Fine Art has announced “Kim Lordier: Illuminated Impressions – A Visual Journey,” featuring a new collection of plein air and studio pastel paintings focusing on the California and Monterey Coast.
From the organizers:
Jim Rieser is honored to exhibit this collection as he celebrates the gallery’s 25th Anniversary. Representing Historical and Contemporary landscape artists, Rieser invited Lordier to join his gallery in 2006. Quickly becoming a top selling artist, Lordier continues to bring a fresh view of the California Coastal scene with her 8th Solo Show at Rieser Fine Art.
Lordier says about her medium and new work, “It’s just pure pigment. Pastel. But through an artists’ lens, pure pigment becomes a visual impression upon a flat surface. When passion, paint and perspective combine… the effort becomes effortless. Whisked away to a remembered place or striking a chord in your heart, this collection is about color and light.”

“Kim Lordier: Illuminated Impressions – A Visual Journey”
Rieser Fine Art
August 6 – 31, 2022
Reception: August 6
An anchor piece, “Waltzing at Dusk,” was inspired by a painting trip to Monterey. A heavy rain cell, just finished soaking the ground, began to move off the coastline leaving the dramatic flash of color as the sun set.
“Gold Lichen and Turquoise Seas” was created in the studio based off of a plein air trip to Point Lobos State Park. Lordier was captivated by the turquoise and gold theme.
