Belinda Loftus is an artist living and working in Co Down in Northern Ireland. She uses a very wide range of media and styles to explore the natural environment, ancient history and myths, political events past and present, and the impact of high finance and artificial intelligence.
Her work has been exhibited in locations ranging from the Documenta exhibition in Kassel, London’s Whitechapel Gallery and the Dublin Biennial to an indoor golf driving range in Belfast and agricultural and vintage shows. She has also published a modern Book of Hours, available for purchase through this website.
Belinda Loftus' most recent show was at Rathfarnham Castle, Dublin, in September/October 2022, with Syrian artist Manar Al Shouha. Titled Citizens?, it dealt with both the positive and negative aspects of nationhood and cultural identity, the sufferings of those caught in conflict and forced migration, their resulting mixed feelings about where home is, the ways in which government and corporations contribute to drivers of migration such as climate change, and how we can find co-citizenship with both human and non-human elements of our universe.
