EXHIBITION PREVIEW

Noel Middleton Solo Exhibition
Order of Operations

From Jan 10 – Feb 7, 2015
For his first solo show at Narwhal Contemporary, Toronto-based Noel Middleton presents an immersive mixed media installation of site-specific sculpture. Skillfully fabricated from found objects cast from a variety of collected construction materials, the works offer viewers an intriguing entry point into Middleton’s creative commitment to chance.

Middleton’s practice is instinctively multidisciplinary, driven by circumstance, process and a strong sense of materiality. The works in Order of Operations are the result of a disciplined approach to fabrication that maintains a strong connection to imagination and play. Middleton performs his practice through an intuitive building up of layers that combines found and collected objects with material largely sourced from renovations of the gallery itself. It is this genuine attraction to a wide range of materials, coupled with an impulse for story telling, that determines the conditions of production. Whether cast, reconstructed or recontextualized, there are seemingly endless varieties of objects and textures to be discovered within the works.
