Abstract (English)

"Middleton’s practice is motivated by the entropy and decline of all material goods, and her immersive installations are as fantastical, glistening, and seductive as they are horrific. An uneasy marriage of materials and process, Middleton’s practice incorporates castoffs and debris from consumer culture, organic elements, byproducts from studio production, and utilitarian building and craft supplies like paint, fabric, wax, and plastic sheeting, all grafted together in precarious, playful ways that mimic natural processes of growth, accumulation and decay." -- Publisher's website.
