Patsy Allen Sculptures
Artist Patsy Allen has been sculpting for many years, over which time she has not only released her own collections, but worked for a wealth of major companies including Royal Doulton, Frith Sculpture and Regency Fine Art, to name just a few. During the course of her career, Allen has exhibited her works widely, and her sculpture and artwork has sold globally.
Amongst the high-profile projects of Patsy Allen’s career was her commissioned work at Gorton Monastery in Manchester; a painting of St Francis in recognition of his 800th anniversary. An important and sacred task giving the dedication of the monastery is to St. Francis himself.
Foundry bronze sculptures
Driving Allen's work throughout her time as a sculptor has been her passion for connecting with an audience. Patsy Allen's artwork is not intended to be as broad as possible. Instead, its aim is to facilitate a deeper connection with those people who want to interpret her work and engage with it in their own personal way. This ideal of communicating with a passionate audience has taken her across many different modes and mediums. But with our collection of Patsy Allen sculpture here at Sculpture Gallery, you get to see exactly why sculpture is one area in which she has had such a strong career.
Animal themed sculpture
Patsy Allen is an artist who gets a great deal of energy out of engaging with the natural world. She is, after all, a successful children’s author too, with her book ‘Adventures of the Rainbow Scarecrows’ serving as yet another expression of this passion for the natural world. You see this also throughout her sculpted work. Indeed, it is not irrelevant in fact to compare Allen's sculptures to children’s book illustrations, in the sense that they exude an incredible amount of warmth and joy. This is particularly impressive in the sometimes rather coldly precise medium of sculpted artwork.
With Patsy Allen sculpture, you will find all of the precision and technical mastery that those keen on sculptures love so much. But then you also get an almost novelistic depth of emotion in these figures. It is as though you are being shown how much Patsy empathises and loves the creatures that she uses as subjects in her sculpture.
