Artist Statement Ellen’s work ‘Shape Salad’ abstractly explores what Dublin is and the juxtaposition of how it looks vs. the internal political chaos. A gesture starts a conversation of relationships that take place within the confines of the surface's edge and interplaying layered shapes, textures and colour. It is a container of expression and a series of moments in time. Black borders sandwich in layers of vibrant, chaotic shapes and gestures. It is an expression of what Dublin can feel like at times. It is home, it is a sense of pride and belonging along with a feeling of frustration and hopelessness in what this city is becoming.

Artist Bio Ellen Duffy is a multi-disciplinary artist from Dublin. She works across sculptural assemblage, expanded painting, mixed media collage and drawing. Her process is playful and seeks the building of dialogue between the objects/materials used in her work. She builds on gestural mark-making and the integration of recurring forms that appear across her artistic practice taken from found forms of her everyday. Ellen is the artist in residence at The Draiocht 22/23 and an awardee of; The Next Generation Award, the Agility Award and the Fingal Support Scheme 2022.
