Artist Sally Storch has made a name for herself as a storyteller with a brush, often focusing the subject matter of her representational paintings on people who find themselves in cleverly staged and mysterious circumstances. A letter left on a table, a keepsake forgotten in a taxicab or other, similar visual peculiarities against romantic urban backgrounds stimulate the imagination of the viewer.
Flawlessly rendered, Storch’s canvases fly out of galleries faster than the artist can produce them. Right now a fine selection of her work is on display at Sue Greenwood Fine Art in Laguna Beach. Daniella Walsh
