”I want oil paint and colour to channel emotion and energy to connect viewer and painting”.

Allan Storer’s paintings have a vitality of their own, not necessarily movement or physical action but an energy, independent of image. The texture of the oil paint is important to him, his work being primarily about the emotional connection between the canvas and viewer. Storer paints his large abstracts with a squeegee and a palette knife, giving him no alternative than to find opportunity in chance outcomes. His work is sometimes immediate and often worked and re-worked, or possibly left untouched for months until some kind of completion is achieved. The techniques of both Gerhard Richter and Rothko can easily be seen as an influence in his powerful canvases. Following seven years of academic studies and postgraduate research in fine art and theory at Chelsea College of Art and finally Kings College, Allan is now a highly regarded artist with commissions that include a royal household, numerous celebrities, politicians and private residences worldwide. Storer is based in both St. Ives and London.
