Dallas, Texas native David Bates creates works that are done in the more traditional technique of painting on canvas and panel, but is also prolific in his creation of hand-painted bronzes, aluminum pieces and wood constructions done as free-standing sculptures and low wall reliefs. In his distinctive, bold style David Bates uses his thick, lush painterly approach continuously throughout all of his work -- despite the medium. David Bates' work is included in numerous public collections including the following: Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; and the Whitney Museum of Art, also in New York City.
