For Storrier, the devastation and renewal of the decay of material culture and fire is intriguing. His blaze lines or burning ropes and fire paintings evolved in the early 1980s and are the hallmarks of his work. Beauty and decay are evocatively represented through texture and colour, drawing on the atmospheric effects at dawn and dusk; counterbalanced by destructive elements like fire, snakes and slabs of meat. Storrier's original vision and high technical competence allow him to explore the limitless space of the night sky, the unforgiving yet beautiful endless horizons, both lit by the atmospheric firelight of a campfire. The vastness and mood of the Australian landscape and the special role played by fire are boldly, symbolically and evocatively captured on Storrier's canvasses.
