James Reid-Cunningham

Artist: James Reid-Cunningham, Hematite Press (US)

Title: Grievous Trouble and Annoy

Medium/technique(s): Printed with an Epson Photo R-1800 inkjet printer using pigment inks on Chartham Translucent paper and Moab Lasal Matte 235 paper. Each copy has a unique binding.

Edition size: 10

Artist Statement: The tale is an extremely condensed version of a single tale from John Payne’s 1886 translation of the Decameron. I have spent more than thirty years creating books, as a book conservator, design binder and book artist. As time passes, I am less and less clear of my intentions when creating a new book. Each book is an enigma, an abstract design, an evocative object to be handled and examined by readers as they explore myriad cryptic meanings leaf by leaf.
