A year Residency has been awarded to local Tyrrelstown artist, Ellen Duffy, who will have free access to the Artist Studio, technical and admin support.
Ellen Duffy works across sculptural assemblage, installation and more recently through mixed media works on paper. Her work playfully explores the vitality an object/material possesses once it is introduced to the network of an assemblage.
Duffy looks at the world as existing in perpetually changing assemblages that create infinite networks. She enters into a dialogue between the work, the space and the viewer and it is here she seeks to find the tension between these inter-reliant components.
Duffy is from Tyrrelstown, Dublin 15 and will be Draíocht’s Studio Artist in Residence 2022.
"Can’t believe my year at Draíocht has come to an end. I have had such a wonderful time in this incredibly supportive and warm environment from the team. Thank you for making my time in the Studio incredible and for all the opportunities received throughout. I could not rate this place any higher. It’s been such a pleasure ❤️" - Ellen Duffy, 6th April 2023
