About Mia

Baltimore City

Halton grew up in a family of artists, including her maternal grandparents and mother. She remembers her early art-making as both a refuge and a way to make sense of the emotional vagaries of family life. During Halton’s years as an undergraduate she encountered the work of Jean Dubuffet. He was a seminal discovery for her, for his ability not only to access the dark side of inner life... more

Encounters - Creative Alliance

For me, it’s all comes down (up?) to one-on-one exchanges. They will more than likely lead to ethical questions.

Further Explorations of Encounters – McLean Project for the Arts

I’m hooked on installation. The format opens up the potential to continue the exploration process as I’m installing the exhibition. I can explore my ideas in greater detail, and with more depth.

Paper

These works on paper show angry women, the covering up of the truth, the transformation of a Pushover, what’s inviolate, the whisper of pushovers as they land, and a selection of interpersonal dynamics.

Canvas

I haven’t worked on canvas for awhile but these concepts are still current for me.

Ceramics

I began working with Ceramics around 5 years ago, right after a hit-and-run driver left my Mom seriously brain damaged. I needed a material that I could cut, push, and pull.

Relief

Now that the figures have come off of the 2D surface the ways in which they can engage with each other have grown exponentially.

Ceramic Figures

The figures can be seen interacting with their surroundings now. We don’t see the sky falling but the upward gazes of the ones with blue noses suggest that something is going on up there.
