John Middleton


Born in Sheffield in 1940 and now in his 70s and living and working in Harrogate, despite being voluntarily ‘under the radar’ for nearly 40 years. painter John Middleton’s reputation as ‘the real thing’ has survived the passage of time and his flame continues burning quietly but strongly. The website was built to create an online archive but also coincide with John’s new exhibition, ‘Paint’ at RedHouse Originals Gallery, Harrogate, the first comprehensive solo collection since he retreated from publicly exhibiting in the early 1980s.

The works are presented through the filter of an “outsider” and from a largely bohemian perspective, predominantly working in watercolour, gouache & collage.
