Tamera Bremer was born in Great Falls, Montana in 1977. She received her B.A. in Studio Art with a minor in Philosophy from Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon in 1999. She then moved to Chicago where she completed her M.F.A. in Performance at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2003. Exhibitions have been thin but include the Betty Rhymer Gallery, Daley Plaza, The Dollhouse, School of High Heels (all in Chicago) as well as shows at the Miller Fine Arts Center (McMinnville, Oregon), the Alpern Gallery and Gallery 5 (Portland, Oregon). From August 25th through September 27th, 2014 she can be seen performing KISS OFF part one at the Nils Lou Memorial Gallery at Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon.
Bremer’s work is by nature concept to process. A grandiose scheme is hatched, and just enough technique is acquired to bring the idea to life, often taking the artist years to complete a body of work. Her projects range in technique but are always highly personal and self-revelatory. Endurance performance, the grid, mental illness, failure, repetition and the one-liner are central themes to the work. The current performance at Linfield College signifies the need to be more immediate in her work and to engage in a community setting rather than Bremer’s usual reclusive style. It is a new beginning.
