Wendell Castle, master furniture maker, designer, sculptor, and educator, is in the sixth decade of a prodigious lifework that began in 1958 and aligns with the development of the American art furniture movement. Wendell Castle Remastered is an emblematic exhibition that blends the artist’s seminal works with his current collection, produced with digital technology. In part a self-reflection, this eponymous, full-color companion book examines some of Castle’s historically representative works as well as significant contemporary furniture pieces, continuing his highly respected and acclaimed sculptural/functional dialogue. Castle, now 83 and ever the innovator, is remarkable for his openness to new technologies; he has not only embraced an initially complex practice, but has “remastered” it.
