eric gelber on david storey at cue art foundation (776 words)
David Storey is one of the few formalist painters I can think of who hasn't replaced inventiveness with monotony.
Storey is so concerned with formal qualities his imaginary shapes look the way they do because of their relationship to other parts of the composition.
Storey is interested in what Greenberg called the "decorative and narrative complications of line." The horses that appear in "Sol Invictus," (2002), are as mechanical and iconic as the figures that appear in Davis' work.
