ABOUT

Allan Storer’s abstract works are primarily impasto oil with some in mixed media and acrylics.

He paints in studios in London and St. Ives, Cornwall.

Influenced by Gerhard Richter’s squeegee technique and the contemporary styles of both Rothko and Pollock,  Allan is fascinated by the innate organic quality of oil paint and its facility to explore the dictum truth to material:

“ My aim is to channel an emotion and energy to connect both viewer and painting, utilising paint and colour as the ultimate medium and reality. Impasto oil and colour create their own reality by contrast to imitation: that is a copy of reality, immitating the world beyond the canvas.”
