About the Artist
Alan Somerville is a critically acclaimed master sculptor. His figurative drawings and sculptures are defined by movement, energy and emotion. His understanding of the dynamics of physical structure captures a dignity which emanates from within the subject and is never static.
Alan’s relocation to Australia from New Zealand in 1988 led him to the Fine Art Bronze Foundry in Sydney. His works have been commissioned for private and public collections. Public works include the two iconic Bronze Diggers on Sydney’s Anzac Bridge, the Bull at World Square, Sir Henry Parkes in Centennial Park, Blessed Pope John 23rd and three bronze sculptures at the Australian War Memorial.
It has been said of Somerville’s art,
‘…it’s not just a simple representation, not just a single dimensional concept. It is more about the soul and the spirit that dwells within.’
