"Her surgical aesthetic brings out the corporeal qualities of paint and the mechanical aspects of the body. Her palette, which pits bright poppy against dark purple and acid green, electrifies. McMillan's world is one in which the past and present are utterly transparent-brutally so. The artist folds time over itself, and the results are romantic, biting." Kat Herriman, Artforum
