Art of Precision:
The Engineered Sculpture of Christopher Bathgate
Now through May 31, 2020
From wood turning and metal work to glassblowing and ceramics, industrial processes have always found their way into the production of fine art. NMIH is pleased to exhibit the selected works of Chris Bathgate, a self-trained machinist employing handmade tools, automated CNC milling machines and metal lathes to create complex artistic expressions inspired by industry. Playing with the tension between aesthetic vs utility, form vs function, and industrial vs handmade, Bathgate’s inter-disciplinary work lies at the intersection of art, craft, and design. It serves as an example of how computer-mediated fabrication may bridge the divide between art, craft, and industrial production in the Digital Age. Art of Precision: The Engineered Sculpture of Christopher Bathgate will be on view from January 11-May 31, 2020.
