Jason Middlebrook looks to the relationship between people and the natural world for inspiration in his work. Influenced greatly by the desire to encourage awareness of our impact on the planet, and therefore ourselves, his work is often slightly unnerving, as well as beautiful. This print, called Iconic Debris, is a colorful explosion of shapes. Indistinct though they are, they suggest bits and pieces of man-made objects, like debris of a landfill. The movement in the image is forceful and outwards, the lines erupting toward the viewer as though they will escape from the paper, littering the world with debris.Read Less

Jason Middlebrook gathers his creative inspiration from nature and from humans' endless fear and misunderstanding that leads to our destructive impact on the earth. From sculptural installations of salvaged materials to colorfully drafted renderings of flora and fauna, Middlebrook questions the relationships between humans, nature, and art. While his work is certainly critical of that relationship, Middlebrook also finds beauty in the garbage, detritus, and collisions of man and nature.

Middlebrook has both enlightened and offended with his controversial ideas about the places where art lives and how art is viewed. Based on the quotation, "Museums are places where art goes to die," Middlebrook did several projects critiquing museums' authority, treating museum spaces as "graveyards for art." His work is often site-specific, challenging traditional expectations for boundaries between civilization, culture, and nature.Read Less
