Jason Middlebrook is a contemporary mixed-media artist, whose work explores the complex relationship between nature and man. In "Fait Accompli," a whimsical approach is taken by Middlebrook to explore the idea of returning to nature. The drawing shows the head and nude torso of a reclining female, seemingly dismembered and dead. The flowers emerging from her chest suggest that her body has merged with the nature surrounding her. A pig and penguin stand vigil, with anthropomorphized emotions and cosmological designs on their bodies. The title defines her death as a fait accompli.
Jason Middlebrook was born in 1966 in Jackson, Michigan. He received his BFA from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1990 and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in California in 1994.
