The exhibition will feature approximately 40 works of art, including several historically important examples that illustrate the innovations of his stack-lamination technique, and a few selections from his mold-form fiberglass experiments. These are the inspiration for the contemporary works that Castle has been creating with his state-of-the-art robot, which utilizes a process similar to his early stack-lamination carving, but with greater precision and complexity. Castle’s current studio practice combines handcraftsmanship—such as carving, rasping, and finishing—with digital technologies, including 3D scanning, 3D modeling, and computer-controlled milling. These new works will be installed in dialogue with the earlier pieces that inspired them.
