Haystack Perspective

A mixed-media artist to an incredible extent, Jason Middlebrook works with steel, glass, ceramics, acrylic, wood, and paper to produce sculptures, paintings, and site-specific installations. Wood grain and graphic patterning are often the focus of Middlebrook’s work. Meandering lines and geometric shapes work their way across the smooth surfaces of paper or wooden planks, counteracting the raw and organic forms of nature he depicts. The work is an exercise in control and restraint. Straddling abstraction and landscape, Middlebrook acknowledges and pays homage to movements in art history as well as the environment from which his frequent canvases grow.
