About

Elliot STOREY is a visual artist whose work focuses on the moving image (film/video) while developing sculpture, drawing, photographic and musical processes.

His videos / films explore the fine line between cinema and video art.

His interest in the relationship between man and the city emerges as an obsession.

This fascination is explored through a dreamlike and musical mise en scene.

The actors and dancers wander through a contemporary architecture.

He currently is also playing with a sculpture process which appears in his films. 

The sculptures evolve and interact with the narrative and performers in the films and are then exhibited.

Drawings and photographies also explore his ideas on man and the city.

Finally his use of music becomes the binding material exploring the emotional character of Elliot's work. 

 

He is currently developping his most ambitious project to date currently titled THE TRANSITION PROJECT which involves 3 feature length films (RECONCILIATION being the 1st and currently in post-production CONFESSIONS will the 2nd), multiple short films (including THE LOVERS to be considered a prelude) and smaller videos as well as drawings and sculptures.
