Justin Orvis Steimer


Justin Orvis Steimer’s (USA, 1981) work has been developed as a series of responses to invisible sources that have been excluded from scientific versions of reality. With freehand lines and forms he transposes space, time, sound and presence to offer a channeled truth. He makes canvases from materials found in the places he renders, or given to him by the subjects of his portraits; the pre-existing color, texture and geometry affecting the finished result.

He often collaborates with practitioners from different fields such as musicians, astronomers, shamen, or other artists who contribute to determine the identity of each work.

Steimer earned his BFA in painting from the University of Colorado in 2004. He made his museum debut in 2016 at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe. Steimer is a co-founder of the CTG Collective.
