Nathan Skiles Clockmaker's Apprentice

 Nathan Skiles : The Clockmaker's Apprentice at the Hunterdon Art Museum, Clinton, New Jersey.  Nathan Skiles combines recognizable iconography, such as woodworking and drafting tools, with cuckoo clocks and birdhouses to directly influence our traditional perceptions. With his innovative use of foam rubber as the only material in his works, Skiles tricks the eye and confuses our sense of immediate recognition, further challenging the viewer to look beyond the obvious and discover the detailed and meticulous process to which he is attached. For his exhibition at the Museum, Skiles has installed 100 never-before-seen pieces.
