Artist Statement

Storms’ work juxtaposes abstract and representational subject matter. Inspired in part by the mid 50s Brazilian Concrete/ NeoConcrete abstractionists and by observations of a rapidly changing Toronto cityscape, his painting challenges the authority of strict artistic disciplines by creating subtly executed hard-edged compositions and loosely painted scenes of architecture and curtain wall details.
