Solo Exhibition Featuring David Middlebrook
The McLoughlin Gallery is pleased to present Think Things, a solo exhibition of new sculpture by David Middlebrook. Middlebrook’s career began as a sculptor of ceramics during the Bay Area Funk Movement. South Bay artist, Middlebrook now focuses on creating large-scale stone and bronze sculptures for public and private art collections having completed over 50 public art commissions and has maintained a studio in Pietrasanta, Italy for many years.
Middlebrook's work is dynamic and appears to defy gravity, challenging the realities of the world around us and preconceived notions of physics. His sculptures possess a visual playfulness that is balanced by the artist’s political critique as he examines current economic and environmental issues. These narratives are born from the preservation and stewardship of our planet, emphasizing and celebrating of all that is precious in this world as he pays tribute to Duchamp, Brancusi and Magritte.

About the Artist
Born in Jackson, Michigan, David Middlebrook now lives and works in Los Gatos, California. Middlebrook began his sculpture career in ceramics and now works with stone, wood, and bronze. He began employing stonework after his first inspirational journey to Northern Italy in 1983. Middlebrook constitutes dynamic sculptural compositions through the coupling of industrial with organic, or rough with smooth forms. Middlebrook's work possesses a visual playfulness that is often off set by the artist's political critique as he examines current economic and environmental concerns.
