Ulysses excerpt

July 27, 2013

My entry in the Portland Society for Calligraphy’s fall 2013 member show featured an excerpt from the Cyclops chapter of Ulysses. I once saw these words on a gigantic two- or three-story-high banner in Dublin on Bloomsday, probably as publicity for a local grocery store, and the pungent, tangible list of vegetables has stuck with me for many years. I wanted my piece to have a similarly visceral effect on a smaller scale, so I framed it with some food-related objects.
