I made this print as a companion to a piece I made that focused on Joyce’s ‘Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man’. Joyce attended Clongowes wood boarding school. This is a study in pen and ink of the entrance gates which I transferred to an aluminium plate using a photopolymer etching process. The map in the background is based on a section of a map of Kildare drawn by Alex Taylor in 1783.
