Jason Middlebrook is a contemporary mixed-media artist, whose work explores the complex relationship between nature and man. "Nuova Vita" shows a deceased squirrel, positioned on a chair, with his head on a proportionally sized table. Filling the entire right side of the paper is what appears to be a fallen wall, with graffiti images and writing sporadically applied to the rocks. The title, "Nuova Vita," means “new life,” and appears as a spray painted tag in the bottom right corner of the work. It may refer to the idea that a new life is the merging of nature.
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.
