Steve Storz, born in 1960, originally from the industrial town of Texas City has been combining a wide assortment of materials and techniques into his artwork for over 35 years. An initial spark of creativity came when he was a child, imitating his mom as she made costumes and props for sorority parties. Though really only having access to cast-off scraps and junk from alley-ways for art supplies, led to invention in trying to realize his imaginary world. Storz attributes some of his creative influences from an adolescence of Saturday movie matinees of sci-fi and horror, and reading similar subjects in comic books. In his teens, a fascination for textures and intricate lines, melded with the moodiness of the Pacific Northwest where he grew up, formed a foundation in his career as an artist. His wild imagination, together with an inventiveness with materials culminated in explorations into a wide range of disciplines that continues as drawing, painting, kinetic and static sculpture, sound art, installation art, and even performance art, that is bolstered by his studies in theatre at college. "Solving for x" as Storz puts it, seems to tie much of his artistic work together. It accounts for his interest in melding scientific processes such as electronic and mechanical design in with creative forms that result in his, some describe, mad scientist-like output. Organic forms and surfaces in nature contribute a great deal as well. He also acknowledges studio environment as a factor having established (deliberately) work spaces in a variety of places; a 1930's cannery in Silicon Valley, a basement in an industrial town in New York, a loft in a wood planing mill in Oregon, an abandoned grocery store walk-in cooler in Taos, and currently an adobe garage in Gallup, New Mexico. Line quality, exotic forms and textures combined with an array of emotional moods remain the main thread of pursuit in Storz's art and continue to show up in many differing ways, resolving into a fantastic realm. One where he invites constantly renewed contemplation. Much of Steve's artwork continues to be collected in homes and businesses. See stevestorz0.wordpress.com for a glimpse into Steve's art studio process.
