NOEL MIDDLETON

Born in Canada. Lives and works in Toronto, Canada.

Toronto based Noel Middleton is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sculpture, photography, video and installation. With a disciplined approach to fabrication that often takes its cue from found materials, Middleton is careful to maintain a strong connection to intuition and chance. Recent work includes site-specific sculptural installations of assemblage from cast, reconstructed and recontextualized objects. With an impulse for storytelling and an aesthetic that is both consistent and constantly evolving, Middleton creates intriguing objects that speak to history, myth, materials and process. Middleton has exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Toronto.
