"My work is an exploration of memory and features glimpsed or half-remembered figures and faces 're-imagined ancestors' recovered from a personal archive of the forgotten." - David Storey

About The Artist - David Storey

David is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Brighton. Working from his studio in an old Victorian dairy, David creates haunting images of half-remembered scenes that play with memory. His work is heavily influenced by the landscapes of his youth, particularly the small town of Workington where the artist was raised, and the beautiful shorelines of Solway Firth where he spent his holidays.

We love how David’s process often starts with a found photograph which he then strives to unlock and re-discover the image, culminating in a haunting painting of blurred half-memories. David’s figures are perhaps the most striking part of his work, with their indistinct faces depriving them of emotion or identity. These characters are described by David as “re-imagined people standing on the edge of living memory, recovered from a personal archive of the forgotten.”

David studied at both Hornsey College of Art and Middlesex University, before working as a record sleeve artist. However, the last 25 years of his career has been dedicated to his art, and his work has been featured in dozens of shows since his first at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery in 2003. A few highlights of his career include selection for the Discerning Eye Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in both 2019 and 2020, finalist of the Sunday Times Watercolour Exhibition in 2012 and his numerous solo exhibitions at Panter and Hall, London. David’s work has been widely exhibited across the world including in Spain, Germany, the United States and Italy.

We’ve been working with David Storey since 2020.
