At the launch event, featuring a live performance from NEXCYIA, Formless Anxiety will be available for a special price of £20.00. There will also be a limited edition of ten sculptural book sleeves available, produced from valcromatt.
“The images that follow in this publication have a number of irreducible properties, touching on subjects as wide and varied as landscape, hauntology, the uncanny, photography, writing and semiotics. These are elements of Lucas’ work that emerge to me in parallel, conceptually, if not always in material terms – and furthermore, as always overlapping or themselves suspended in contradiction or dialogue. For one thing that Lucas continues to demonstrate in his practice is an ability to converge and extract different disciplines or lines of enquiry within a holistic voice. This is seen across his painting, sculpture, photography and publishing, but also in the variations of process and consumption that are their result.” - Excerpt from essay by Charlie Mills
