"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


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


Indeed, the landscapes, lights and skies that illuminate many of his paintings are gleaned from a small area within a 30-mile radius of Workington, the town where he grew up. He references elements of this world regularly - maybe the wild fast-changing skies above the Solway Firth, the fells and hillsides looming from a veil of mist or the old sandstone Victorian buildings typical of the area that turn black when it rains. It's here too where he spent cherished summer holidays absorbing the changing lights above the sea and the sandy, hill-encircled shorelines of that coast that feature in many of his paintings.

Yet despite these distinct reference points, these are by no means works of nostalgia. The alluring figures that populate the paintings belong to no particular time and place. Instead he draws his ideas from a range of material that comes accidentally to hand, an old photograph found in a bric-a-brac shop for instance. In this way he rescues memories at the point where they might vanish forever and then recontextualizes them.
