In this conversation, renowned artist Rita Duffy talks about various influences on her creative practices and how her paintings function as active poetic spaces where the energy of contradictory and destructive forces are transmuted and resolved.

Her socially engaged projects have challenged norms and stimulated debate by visually evoking the politics of the everyday. Rooted at the juncture of where the subjective, questing self encounters the seething, political certainties of the external world, Duffy will reflect on how tensions revealed in art speak to peace and reconciliation.


Rita Duffy received a B.A. at the Art & Design Centre and an M.A. in Fine Art at Ulster University. She is an Honorary Member of the Royal Society of Ulster Architects and an associate of Goldsmiths College, London. She has initiated several major collaborative art projects and her work is sought after in numerous public and private collections.
