Mia Middleton is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Sydney, Australia whose practice spans painting, sculpture and installation. Drawing on symbol and myth, Mia’s work questions the boundaries between human and non-human, conscious and subconscious, physical and ephemeral. Organic and synthetic matter hybridise in her work, forming a visceral archaeology of animistic ciphers. These forms often interact spatially to create a web of associations and tensions, exploring themes of interiority, impact and ownership.
Since completing a BFA (Hons) at COFA in 2013, Mia's work has been exhibited at galleries both nationally and abroad, including Fires (Sydney), CICA Museum (Korea), Aici Acolo (Romania), Kings (Melbourne), Homesession (Barcelona) and Athens DAF (Greece). After completing two international art residencies in 2018, Mia was in residence with the Seoul Museum of Art until March 2020.
