At the age of nineteen in 1968, Tim Storrier was the youngest ever recipient of the Sulman Prize, an award also conferred on him in 1984. He studied graphic design at the National Art School, Sydney, and has travelled extensively to the USA, Europe, China and the Middle East. His study tours to Egypt and Central Australia conveyed to him the vastness of the landscape and remote civilisations.
The 'Burning Rope' series began as a site-specific installation in Central Australia, a line of fire invisibly suspended between two points, mirroring the horizon line in the distance. Storrier is interested in the decay of material culture and fire represents the source of both devastation and renewal. There is a tension in his work between beauty and decay: his evocative use of texture and colour in the atmospheric effects at daybreak and dusk, are counterbalanced by destructive or gruesome elements like fire, snakes and slabs of meat.
Storrier currently lives and works in Bathurst, NSW. He is represented in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the National Gallery of Australia, all state and many regional gallery collections. He was appointed Trustee of the Art Gallery of NSW in 1989, and was awarded the Order of Australia (AM) in 1994 for his services to art.
