LOS ANGELES, CA.- Roberts Projects announced representation of Australian artist Mia Middleton, whose pictorial works explore interiority, memory and evocation. Middleton’s small-scale paintings capture a tension and threshold between conscious and subconscious, desire and aversion, reality and fantasy. The gallery will exhibit a series of works alongside other artists at Art Basel Miami Beach this December. This announcement follows the gallery’s first exhibition of Middleton’s work–Love Story–this past April.

Middleton is a semiotician in a profoundly visual sense. Often working in a sequence of poetic vignettes, Middleton’s uncanny ability to delve into the transience of existence invites viewers to contemplate the interplay between interiority and exteriority, corporeality and the world beyond. The artist’s skillful manipulation of composition, color and subject matter produces striking freeze-frames that compels viewers to cross the threshold into a profound psychological exploration.

For Art Basel Miami Beach 2023, Roberts Projects is pleased to present a tightly curated selection of works that challenge the prevalence of linear narratives, including a special site-specific installation by Middleton—an ambitious series of intimate paintings which capture the delicate balance between conscious and subconscious realms. Alongside Middleton, Roberts Projects will be highlighting other new and emerging voices, such as Wangari Mathenge, Suchitra Mattai, and Justin Williams, and diverse works from established artists including Amoako Boafo, Jeffrey Gibson, Betye Saar and Kehinde Wiley, among others. Connecting the works on view is a profound use of storytelling which thematically explores relationships between history, memory, performance and imagination.

Additionally, to coincide with the fair, Roberts Projects is releasing a new publication, Mia Middleton: Love Story. This catalogue, with text by Sarah Fensom, is Middleton’s first book and presents a documentation of the exhibition including drawings and inspiration from the artist’s own sketchbooks in preparation for her exhibition, Love Story, which took place earlier this year.

Mia Middleton (b. 1988) is a Portugal-based artist whose pictorial works explore interiority, memory, and evocation. Middleton’s small-scale paintings capture a tension and threshold between conscious and subconscious, desire and aversion, reality, and fantasy. In these intimate freeze-frames, ephemeral moments are stripped of their context and suspended in time, intimating a narrative without creating one and inviting viewers into a psychological framework of uncertainty and discovery. Mia Middleton has exhibited widely internationally.
