. “Phenotypic is a series of works on paper(...) The grid as a framework facilitates transfer of information and process. Data sourced from the prediction of chance operations is plotted and manipulated, using symmetry and repetition processes common to music composition and the repeat pattern of textiles. The relationship between digital and analog is explored through the use of punched, gridded paper evocative of the Jacquard weaving loom,(...) K.L. 2018

This is the last photo with Dad & myself taken last August after my artist talk @a4soundsstudios & our last Dad/Daughter Gallery date. I am forever grateful to those who made this last trip possible; @guildhouse_au @glasssocietyofireland & @a4soundsstudios. The reality of living Oz for nearly 21 years meant our time together was limited.
Saying goodbye to Dad at the wake & funeral was so hard after his illness but it was a true celebration of Dad & his literary loves as we read from Joyce, Kinsella, Dads own memoirs, heard songs from Uncle Kieran, the Beatles, Leonard Cohen, Voice Squad & a beautiful eulogy by sister Katy. Our extended family took great comfort from those who turned up in their 100s to pay respect to him & support us at his wake & funeral service, including so many of his former students. Dad was a Joycean scholar & he loved Thomas Kinsella, Samuel Beckett, Seamas Heaney, William Blake, T.S.Elliot, Eavan Boland, Paula Mehan & many many more; He loved watching football & listening to a good opera. He would meticulously plan our gallery outings when I was home- our mode of communication was through our mutual appreciation of art & arts writing. Dad was a fan & avid supporter of all his daughters & our achievements & loved his grandchildren in his own unconventional way. He was a gifted & profoundly respected lecturer in English Literature at St Patrick’s Teacher Training College (DCU) teaching into B.Ed & Masters programs. My sisters & I used to sit in on his lectures if there were poets or playwrights on our school curriculum that he was teaching. It was then we saw another side to Dad. The side that he lived for-his teaching, his students & his books. A quiet unassuming man became a giant as he brought literature to life in the lecture hall, acting out scenes in plays & poems, often playing multiple characters like Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, while pulling a drag on an unfiltered cigarette.
We will miss his quiet stoop & his head full of words. “One by one they were all becoming shades. Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age”
The Dead, Dubliners, James Joyce
