Allan Storer paints in studios in London and St. Ives, Cornwall. His abstract works are primarily impasto oil with some in mixed media and acrylics.
Influenced by Gerhard Richter’s squeegee technique and the contemporary styles of Rothko and Pollock, Storer is fascinated by the innate organic quality of oil paint and its facility to explore the dictum truth to material:
“as a medium, impasto oil is responsible for it’s own reality by contrast to an imitated world beyond a canvas.” Allan Storer.
His aim is to channel an emotion and energy, ultimately to connect both viewer and painting.
Following seven years in college, including post graduate research at Chelsea College of Art and finally Kings College, Storer gained the tools of his trade enabling his artistic pursuit in the worlds of theatre, education and therapy.
His work has been exhibited with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in the Mall Galleries, London, museums and public art galleries.
Private collections include an UAE Royal Household, villas in the south of France and executive developments in the UK and USA. Included in the Public Catalogue Foundation of paintings in the national collection sponsored by the BBC.
