Artist Robert Amos creates art in a multitude of mediums and a variety of subjects. He is noted for his paintings of Victoria, his collage photographic portraits of artists in their studio and other work. He is less known for his James Joyce related art. Amos, fascinated by Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, has turned to his art to help him understand the book.
Here are a few photographs of Amos and the artworks. The photos were taken at the James Joyce Bistro in downtown Victoria which Amos used as a giant canvas for a Joyce tribute. Images of Joyce, text and characters from his books are featured on murals and paintings and tables. Text from the books even covers the bar top and his suit.

I hope to post a long interview with Robert regarding the Joyce project but for now I’ll post these photographs.
