Stephen Yates

Yates Arts

"These paintings are based on a theme that has been recurrent in my work for many years: they suggest forms moving through various atmospheres."

Stephen Yates creates paintings in which the layered brushstrokes describe a sense of light moving through vibrant seas, or a space in which simple shapes drift in a color-suffused atmosphere.

Forms sway in underwater currents or undulate with wind across landscapes or flicker with reflected light as they dart through darkness. A sense of prismatic color, energy, movement, and passage of time inhabit his paintings.

Intentionally non-specific in terms of recognizable images, Stephen Yates' paintings create a specific sense of place and experience.
