Rita Duffy (b. 1959, N. Ireland) is an artist whose work concentrates on the figurative, and narrative tradition. Her art is often autobiographical, including themes and images of Irish identity, history, and politics. She is an associate at the Goldsmiths College, London and is currently working on an artistic exchange with Argentina and N. Ireland, looking at the role art has in post-conflict societies. Duffy’s work is being increasingly collected at home and abroad with work in numerous public and private collections.
