James elaborates: "For many, the studio is more than just a physical space - it's a state of mind. They offer us an environment where we can safely ruminate, surrounded by all the tools we need to bring new ideas to fruition. Whether we need chaos or clarity, a studio provides welcome refuge from all the distractions of the world outside.”
James is currently working on a project looking at obscure folk traditions entitled British Folk in which he has set out to explore the darker, more obscure cultural traditions that persist in the UK. This project takes the form of a trilogy of limited edition books stocked at bookshops and outlets worldwide including Dover Street Market, London, Motto Berlin and Dashwood Books, New York.
The exhibition continues at J & A Café, 4 Sutton Lane, London, EC1M 5PU until Wednesday 2nd May. Private viewing Thursday 5th April from 6pm.
