Our next artist in residence is Isabel Duffy @isabeleva.art. Isabel is an emerging multidisciplinary artist from Margate specialising in collage and printmaking. Using a combination of archival and everyday imagery together with her own photography, Isabel creates bold and colourful assemblages informed by surrealist photomontage and dadaist principles in art making. Isabel established This and That artist collective, co curating exhibitions in Edinburgh and was a selected Visual Artist for Hidden Door Festival in 2022. Isabel is bringing her project ‘Apiary’ to Banana Block which will explore collage and the theme of home through EPP quilting. During the residency she will be running a series of free to attend ‘pollinator sessions’ in textiles printing where you can learn some new techniques and create your own contribution to the quilt and exhibition.
