  • New Publications: The Last Dispatches Of Dust

    Moths and ghosts rise into the malaise.
    We walk and write amongst them, endlessly
    looping our edge lands as the dream collapses.

    The third in the series by Neil Jackson .
    .....a failing shared house, deserted riverside business units as future
    heritage centre, the bloodshot eyes of a deteriorating observer...

  • ... an elaborate tapestry of information and poetry.

    The most vital psychogeographical document of winter 2015/16 must be,
    ' The Suspension of Disbelief By Means Of A Common Sense: Andrew Kötting in conversation with Neil Jackson '.
    It is the third in series of Post Nearly Press interviews and takes us closer to the dark heart of it all.



    In this rare interview Kotting is playful, challenging and reflective, particularly in terms of his artistic collaborations with Iain Sinclair.
    The stunningly packaged booklet is the essential companion piece to the recently released Kotting/Sinclair film, ' By Our Selves '.

    It's print-only, so don't miss out !

  • Forthcoming Road-Trip Exhibition





       

     





    "How does it feel to sleep in a house pillowed and bolstered with all that stuff ? The early novellas, the work journals, typewriters, raincoats, rucksacks. The meticulously kept files, the photographs from the road. The letters, postcards. The maps, football helmets. The Catholic - Buddhist scrolls and relics from which no life can ever be reassembled. Kerouac was the dark angel, freeing himself from the wheel of karma, the corporeal shroud. But he was also, and it was the source of the tension that fired his art, ' Memory Babe ', an inspired celebrator of the ordinary: passing seasons, winter streets, floods, bars, factories ( from the outside ), woodsmoke, night, touch, family, friends, restlessness, kitchens, insanity, murder."
    Iain Sinclair: American Smoke - journeys to the end of the light ( Hamish Hamilton: 2013 )

  • The Lull



    The Lull: an hallucinatory homage to the complex, unseen textures and disregarded emotions of the achromic small town afternoon; a memory - landscape populated only by future ghosts.

    The Lull: an accidental prose poem; eleven critical minutes from an eleven year walk, documenting how a short - cut to work, a particular paving slab, a snagged leaf on a railing, a lane behind a church, may contain your whole world. It was a febrile, obsessive and disturbingly beautiful project. I was caught ( or possibly released ) in the moment Nick Papadimitriou descibes when a specific,physical location becomes a ,"zone within you, a mode you pass in and out of, a place both receptive to local historic and topographic inquiry and a treasured state of.........could it be a kind of love ? "





    The Lull: a vision of my terrain, fleetingly captured here through the collaboration between Richard Skelton ( www.corbelstonepress.com ) and Alasdair Maclean ( http://alasdairmaclean.tumblr.com ). Richard's exquisite typography reveals what he terms the, " empty afternoon sky - space weighing down on the text - ground below, whilst Alasdair's swirling illustrations evoke the vertiginous, multi-perspectives of the walk.




    With unease and joy, we recognise The Lull as presence, both oppressive and liberating, something tangible and pure, possessing a language based in what Roberto Bolano experienced as the, " momentary disconnection from a certain kind of reality. "  

    It is the creosote dripping on leaves, the alcohol, the ache and our fading dreams of escape.


    The Lull: limited edition of 200 hand - numbered copies, each including a set of 4 artists cards: "from The Lull ".

    £ 10 including postage and packing ( U.K )

    Please email for payment details.

  • exhibition success

    Thanks to everyone who attended the event and everyone who has supported it since through purchases and donations.

    During the week we collected approx. £150 of provisions for the Windermere and District Food Bank . From cash donations and many sales of framed prints,catalogues and hand-stitched cards we were able to donate £250 towards logistical support for the food bank project. Without the vision of the Rev Lis Mullen, the Elders of the Carver Church and crucial help from my friends, none of this would have been possible.

    Church Secretary Moira Rose says," The Church was delighted to host " From The Lane" and to support Julian in raising money for the food bank. It was great to see the Link Building adorned with such startling and beautiful images, all related to our immediate environment. "

    The event certainly indicated as Julian suggests, " that in these difficult economic times, kindness and hope do remain strong and that many people do reject the media-created language that seeks to the demonize the most vulnerable people in our society. "

    He remains committed to helping support the project. Gallery 2 and Fireside Bookshop, both in Windermere are displaying pieces from the exhibition. 20% of sales will be donated to the food bank.
