Profile

Dallas-born artist David Bates never abandoned us, not in his 40 plus years of gorgeous painting and sculpture since graduating from SMU. His medium is mostly traditional paint on canvas, impressing critics and collecting institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, with his distinctive eye for people and places. However, as this joint exhibit with the Nasher Sculpture Center indicates, his woodworking and aluminum pieces have earned him further distinction. In fact, Nasher director Jeremy Strick put Bates on the same path of modern painter-sculptors Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, artists whose works in the latter have been somewhat less celebrated. To accomodate the two venues, this thorough survey of more than 80 works has been divided along institutional lines with an emphasis on his paintings in Fort Worth and a spotlight on sculpture (and a few related paintings) in Dallas.
