In an attempt to approach the un-approachable and go where the faint-hearted don’t go, Brabazon opened a pot of Quink ink, took a deep breath and dipped into James Joyce’s famous novel. 18 small images emerged and like a scattering of wedding pence, they invite you to take what you can catch and perhaps use it to enter the great adventure that is Ulysses.
Gay Brabazon is a Curragh based visual artist. She studied at the National College of Art and Design and was awarded a Diploma in Art and Design in 2011. Prior to her return to art-making she worked as an Assistant Director in the Irish Film business, the most notable work being Joyce’s short story The Dead directed by John Huston.
