Gouache on canvas,

Mia Cathcart (b. 1993) is a contemporary portrait painter living and working in Liverpool. She’s interested in the formalities and clichés of traditional portraiture; whereby subjects would be photographed in heavily-clad garments, holding exotic fruits to showcase their wealth and importance, and how she can offer a wry twenty-first century take on this. Often painting ‘crops’ of a portrait; such as a torso, ear, or hand, she explores how portraiture can extend beyond just the ‘face.’ 

This work is featured as part of the Convenience Store at the Manchester Contemporary in 2023.
