Cad é faoi na hOibrí is a solo exhibition by Belfast-based artist Stephen Millar which focuses on feminism and language. Millar held a number of informal conversations with different sitters who identify as feminist, to create a series of paintings. The paintings act as portraits or memories of the conversation. A series of curated events supports the exhibition.
Millar specialises in painting and illustration. Somewhere between abstraction and caricature, his work makes use of the interplay between image and text, often for satirical ends. Colour and texture are also important. The composition of a piece is often an unconscious response to the depiction or manipulation of events in the media. The result may be bleakly comic or unsettling.
