Artist : Stephen Yates

When asked about his paintings, this Puget Sound artist will tell you they “suggest a sense of energy and movement through abstractions.” Jake Seniuk, Director and Curator of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, aptly describes the work of Stephen Yates, this way: “Yates’s canvases are charged fields where matter and energy are in a state of constant flux, moving from one state to another.” Stephen’s work can be found in homes and collections throughout the Northwest. He’s also provided large canvases to business and industrial settings where his dancing colors and vibrant brush strokes bring a feeling of lightness and movement.
