Middlebrook’s “My Landscape” features a dozen examples from the artist’s recent series of paintings on hardwood planks and his recent forays into painting which illustrate the shift that occurred in his practice following his move from New York City to the more rural environment of the Hudson Valley. The exhibition surveys the artist’s diverse production - from his paintings to site-specific sculpture and drawings - and, along with the planks, features a 28-foot-high suspended Styrofoam fountain, large-scale works on paper, and a wall drawing.
A graduate of the University of California at Santa Cruz, the San Francisco Art Institute, and the Whitney Independent Study Program, Middlebrook has shown extensively in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Europe. “My Landscape” is supported by a grant from the Artists Resource Trust with additional funding provided by the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Hal and Jodi Hess, Robert and Nancy Magoon, and Kent and Vicki Logan.
