Throughout his career, Bates has alternated between painting and sculpture, expressing his passion for specific motifs, such as the people and scenery of the Texas Gulf coast. He paints narrative figure studies, landscapes, and still lifes from memory, his rugged and painterly style reminiscent of that of early American modernist Marsden Hartley, which also emphasized outline and contour.
