Mia Middleton is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Sydney, Australia whose practice spans sculpture, installation and painting. Drawing on symbol and myth, Mia’s work questions the boundaries between human and non-human, conscious and subconscious, physical and ephemeral. Organic matter and synthetic surfaces 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 impact, balance 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 is currently in residence with the Seoul Museum of Art until March 2020.
