Reinvention: The Work of Chris Bathgate
Featuring 28 works of art, Reinvention: The Work of Chris Bathgate explores how modern and traditional machine work can be harnessed to create unique artistic expressions. Bathgate is a self-trained machinist. He utilizes handmade tools and automated CNC (computer numerical control) milling machines and metal lathes to create precisely-crafted elements that assemble into complex sculptures.
He has spent more than 15 years adapting metalworking machinery from salvaged and re-purposed equipment. Bathgate’s aesthetic considerations stem from the very machines that he uses to create his sculptures. Each piece that he makes is informed by the one it is preceded by, and he modifies his machinery accordingly, not for improved practical function, but for the aesthetic developments that can be produced.Visit Event Website for More Info
