Rita Duffy was born in 1959 in Belfast. She received her BA at the Art and Design Centre and her MA in Fine Art at the University of Ulster. She is one of Northern Ireland’s groundbreaking artsist who began her work concentrating primarily on the figurative/narrative tradition. Her art is often autobiographical, including themes and images of Irish identity, history and politics. Duffy’s work has grown and evolved but remains intensely personal with overtones of the surreal. Homage is paid to the language of magic realism and always there is exquisite crafting of materials.
She has initiated several major collaborative art projects and was made an Honorary Member of the RSUA for her developmental work within the built environment. Her work is increasingly shown in solo and group exhibitions aroung the world. She is an associate of Goldsmiths College, London, working on an artistic exchange between Argentina and N. Ireland. Her Belfast studio practice continues to develop and her public art projects are increasingly preoccupied with international themes. Currently she holds a Leverhulme Fellowship with the Transitional Justice Institute, looking at the role visual art has in post conflict societies.
In 2013 Stoney Road Press published At Sixes And Sevens, a limited edition book by Paul Muldoon with etchings by Rita Duffy.
A visit to our studio will allow us to take you through the collection of artworks available at Stoney Road Press. We’ll select pieces, in advance, to fit your space and match your tastes. A view of the studio in action will give you a real insight into how prints are made.
Stoney Road Press provide a bespoke framing service for traditional and contemporary art in all mediums.
We’ll help you size and select the perfect frame that matches your space and your new artwork. Older pieces, too, can benefit from being reframed – fix the mounting or with the addition of non-reflective glass. Our hanging service is a fresh set of eyes on your existing artworks, to give them a new lease of life in new locations in your home or office.
