The son of two artists, Nathan Hatch has been immersed in art all of his life. Although he enjoys all artistic media, he gravitated toward sculpture as his focus in his late teen years. Hatch went
on to attend the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and received a Bachelors of Fine Art degree with an emphasis in sculptures. It was there, at UWM, that Hatch was first given the opportunity to work
in a foundry and cast his own bronze work. This would remain his primary sculptural media while at UWM. Though not abandoning it, he has since moved away from exclusively producing bronze pieces to
hone his fabrication skills and creates large-scale steel sculptures.
Hatch is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Art degree at the University of Kentucky as well as instructing incoming freshmen classes as a TA in the Art Department. His focus is public art and
working hand in hand with architects and urban planners to create unique sculptural landscapes. The majority of his work can be categorized as abstract expressionism with industrial overtones. His
sculptures also reflect the Minimalist, Cubist, and De Stijl approach to monumental sculpture.
In addition to his sculptural work, Hatch has had a life long passion for the crafting of fine furniture. Having grown up in a wood shop and learning from his father, the trade has become second
nature. His contemporary style integrates metal, wood, stone, and glass to create unique modern designs. Currently Hatch finds himself creating a wide variety of sculptural furniture that he hopes
everyone who views his body of work can identify with. After meeting him you come to realize that Hatch lives both for and through his work.
