Description

“Close Shaves and Wide Berths – Some Recent Case Studies”

Speaker: Graeme Storey

Graeme will present several recent studio based case studies, in particular looking at the conservation, presentation and display of some difficult and unusual works on paper. Different clients have different criteria – what is acceptable to some may not be acceptable to others. And of course what is appropriate for some works may not be appropriate for others.

In this presentation he will discuss his approach to the treatment and display of a range of works, from large and distorted chalk/charcoal drawings, discoloured drawings with friable media, rolled and torn drawings... and a paper dress.

Graeme Storey studied Fine Art at Sunderland Polytechnic and then gained a Diploma in Conservation in 1981 at Gateshead Technical College, (now the University of Northumbria). He worked for Rob Dixon, a print dealer in Oxfordshire, four years before returning to Northumbria University to lecture on the Paper Conservation M.A. course 1986-1990.

In 1990, with his wife Dianne Britton, an easel paintings conservator, he set up Britton and Storey, independent accredited conservators, based in rural Shropshire. Their work extends across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Clients range from large (and small) public and private institutions and from historic house collections to individual collectors.
