Born in Canada, Noel Middleton is a Toronto-based multi-disciplinary artist who works in sculpture, installation, photography and video. Using natural, found and collected materials, Middleton creates multi-sensory, multi-media installations that bridge experiences of reclusion and fantasy with themes of social and economic deprivation. Middleton’s works play with the visual tropes of fairy tales and fantasy, presenting discomfitingly familiar characters, figures and forms that stem from these vocabularies.
Having received a BFA in New Media from Ryerson University, Middleton has exhibited in Ilavska (2007), Vesna Sontse (2008), and his solo installation project, Constantine’s Muscaria (2008). In October 2008, Middleton created Platonic Material Plane, a site-specific installation at The Gladstone Hotel for the upArt Contemporary Art Fair as part of Nuit Blanche (2008). Middleton has exhibited with Narwhal in Little Crowns (2009) and The Dazzle (2010). He has participated in art fairs PULSE LA (2011), AQUA Miami (2011) and PULSE NY (2012). Upcoming, Middleton is participating in the group exhibition 188.8.131.52.0 (Nov 2012) at RH Gallery in New York.
