Artist Statement

"This book was my first taste of ‘Literature’ in school, so it’s close to my heart. Nelson’s Pillar, erected on O’Connell Street by the British, is shown on the cover. It loomed large in Dublin life when the novel was published, both metaphorically and literally. The represents a phallic symbol penetrating the title, signifying the deep undercurrent of sexual anxiety throughout the stories and British domination of the Irish nation. I cut off Nelson\'s head to reference the surreal and anarchic nature of Joyce’s humour." - Dave Hall
