Lorrimer's work is abstract minimalism at its best, exploring the possibilities of form and highlighting the beauty of his raw materials. Sheets of steel are transformed into elegant three dimensional structures that play with the viewer's perception of space, volume and movement, elements that are integral to all of Lorrimer's work. The pieces in this series play with perception by giving the illusion of weight. The visual weight of these works is more than their actual weight, as each unit of work is hollow and only gives the illusion of solid bars of steel. The volume remains the same as it would if the pieces were solid; it is the viewer's perception of the space displaced that is the illusion.
