Art on show in Brighton & Hove and Sussex

Art Show: The Light that Speaks – David Storey ** 26 Mar – 16 Apr 2022 ** Cameron Contemporary Art, Hove

“My paintings offer ‘glimpsed’ or half-remembered figures and faces – re-imagined people standing on the edge of living memory, recovered from a personal archive of the forgotten.”

David Storey


“My ideas come from material that comes to hand, an old photograph for example might chime or resonate. I then embark on a quest to unlock the essence of the material in a way that is somehow extravisual. This journey of development and discovery can take anything from 5 days to 5 years until a kind of alchemy takes place and things seem to harmonise of their own accord in a way that can be very rewarding. I like to paint in an expressionistic way using rags and sponges because the physical marks and textures are a fundamental element of what I’m trying to achieve. The challenge for me though is to retain an economy of execution – an effortless effort.”

David Storey
