Chris Bathgate is a self-taught metal sculptor working and residing in Baltimore, Maryland.
He has spent the last several years learning how to build and use a variety of metal working tools. In addition to exploring the finer intricacies of both manual and computer-assisted machining, he also has applied electroplating and heat coloring techniques to his intricate and precise sculptures. Bathgate's sculptures are as much about the processes he uses as they are about his imagination. His works have been exhibited in galleries throughout Maryland, as well as in New York City, Cincinnati, Washington, D.C., and North Carolina. He is represented by Gallery Imperato, located in Baltimore, and a member of Viridian Artists Inc, an artist cooperative in the Chelsea District of New York City.
