A renowned symbolic landscape painter, Storrier is one of Australia’s most respected and sought-after contemporary artists. In his mysterious poignant paintings of the Australian landscape he captures his personal reaction to its melancholy vastness and its unyielding nature, moods, subtleties and desolation.
The winner of several prestigious Art Prizes Storrier is the youngest ever artist to win the Sulman firstly in 1968 at age 19 and again in 1984. He has also won the Wynne and the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. He has been appointed a Trustee of the Art Gallery of New South Wales and awarded both the Order of Australia AM for his services to art and a Doctor of Arts (Hons.) from Charles Sturt University, New South Wales. Storrier’s work is held in major art museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the National Gallery of Australia, all Australian State Galleries and Museums and many regional gallery collections and numerous national and international private and corporate collections.
“My vision of landscape… has to do with it being nothing more than a backdrop for theatre, a stage set for human drama – travel, dreams, disaster.”
