Introducing: David Storey

Working from his studio in an old Victorian dairy in Brighton, East Sussex, David Storey draws deeply on the images and atmospheres of his own childhood and teenage years spent growing up in West Cumbria. 

Storey's work plays on the idea of memory and the point in which they begin to fade.

AR: What’s the inspiration behind your new work?

The inspiration behind ‘This Day’ is the notion of a half-recalled event. I grew up in West Cumbria and this imaginary figure is situated in the landscape I remember.

This a continuation of the series of ‘memory’ paintings I’ve been working on for the last 2 years.

AR: Which artists inspire you the most?

My favourite artists are Peter Doig, Goya and Turner.

AR: What was the driving force behind your choice to become an artist?

Art was by far my best subject at school plus I was fortunate to have an inspiring teacher (Peter Broadhurst) who mentored me for many years and encouraged me to become a professional artist.

AR: How did you feel when you sold your first piece?

I remember selling a painting for the equivalent of £2 when I was about 13, I don’t think I’ve ever felt a greater buzz.

AR: Have you picked up any other skills in order to create your artwork that you weren't expecting?

I’m a painter pure and simple but over the years I’ve collaborated with several high profile musicians which have proved very fruitful – and recently I have been collaborating with a poet called Simon Beavis and I’m now in awe of how words can change the world.
