    I found the following Lenkiewicz quotation on the Somerville Gallery's website (http://www.somervillegallery.co.uk/index.cfm?articleid=701):'I'd be quite strongly overcome by its absenteeism because I had so intensively registered its thereness, its existence, and suddenly was gone. One of the things that does this most effectively is an empty chair, particularly if someone's just been sitting there. . .  Nothing haunts the mind more deeply than the plain fact of a thing. . . There's no regret, but there's a strong sense of the passing of things. Everything passes: an ineluctable condition of existence.'The word "ineluctable" caught my eye. It's rarely used, the most notable example I can think of is from Joyce's 'Ulysses'. Does anyone know if Lenkiewicz read Joyce?
