Still Life--Winter draws inspiration from landscapes and traditions of the American South and Southwest, whose elements Bates appropriates and combines utilizing a visual vocabulary reminiscent of Cubism, African art and the Hispanic folk tradition. In the present work, Bates renders a tridimensional space, juxtaposed with the flat surface of the vase, heightened by grays that surround and inhabit the branches and leaves. The result is a tribal-inspired still life, evocative of a post-industrial landscape. The Cubist aesthetic, which is also evident in paintings such as Magnolia in a Vase II (2009), is here permeated by non-pretentious patterning and by flatly painted blocks of color that are reminiscent of American Folk Art.
Estimate: $60,000 - $80,000.
This work appears to be in very good condition. Framed Dimensions 82.5 X 50.5 Inches
