Ishai Rimmer


Ishai Rimmer (b. 1980, Beth-Sheva, Israel) is a painter based in London.

'In my paintings I am both the subject and the object. In a narcissistic act I, the artist, deconstruct and recreate figures of myself and of my loved ones. I take images of my banal life, build them into stories and present them as important. The way those situations are painted transforms an everyday images into broken narratives, into unclear statements. This lack of clarity, this doubt, is the ambiguous point I find most fascinating in the human condition, and it is only from this personal point that I can try to say something real.'

Rimmer studied at Goldsmiths College (BA) and graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art with an MA in painting in 2013. Rimmer lives and works in London.
