Alan Yates


Profile                     Alan Yates MRSS FSDC FRSA

An established sculptor with over fifty years experience, Alan Yates enjoys the challenges and excitement of working with cast metal, mainly bronze. His pieces of sculpture explore the spatial relationships, nuances of body language and those ephemeral moments and feelings experienced by people in a variety of situations. His skill lies in transferring a frozen moment in time into cast metal with all the range of tactile vocabulary , colour patination and textural variation at his disposal.


After achieving artistic success as a student at Durham University, he was involved in art education while continuing to produce his own work. His abilities soon earned him election to The Society of Designer Craftsmen, The Royal Society of Sculptors and The Royal Society of Arts.

He has exhibited both nationally and internationally in public, group and one-man shows including the following:
Royal Academy - London; Royal Scottish Academy - Edinburgh; Royal Cambrian Academy - Conwy; The Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts; The Royal West of England Academy - Bristol; Manchester Academy; Paris Salon; Northern Open Touring Exhibition; Chelsea Harbour - London; Scone Palace - Perth; Newcastle University; Durham University; Edinburgh; York; Swansea University; Grantham; Stratford upon Avon; Tatton Park; Mall Galleries - London.
