Mia Middleton is a Sydney based artist whose practice spans painting and installation. Drawing on symbol and myth, Mia’s work questions the boundaries between human and non-human, conscious and subconscious, physical and ethereal. Her surrealist compositions spin a web of ciphers, conjuring a folklore that navigates themes of interiority, power and potency.
Mia's work has been exhibited at galleries nationally and abroad, including Ankles (Sydney), Haydens (Melbourne), CICA Museum (Korea), Aici Acolo (Romania), Homesession (Barcelona) and ADAF (Athens). After completing two international art residencies in 2018, Mia was in residence with the Seoul Museum of Art until March 2020.
Mia would like to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of this land - Australia. The Gadigal of the Eora Nation are the traditional owners of this place we now call Sydney. These lands are unceded, a treaty was never reached here. Mia pays her respects to Elders past and present. This place always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
