Curious Creatures, Daylight

Regular price$ 260.00


These curious creatures found us by way of artist Anna Chapman Parker who discovered the domino paper in a French auction of rare books and manuscripts. We then invited her to design a contemporary response to the archival print. Within both papers there lies the promise of concealed magic. On first glance the beasts are naïve and earthly animals until, that is, you spot the unicorn hiding among them. This idea of hidden delights is continued in Anna’s wallpaper titled Thicket.

Additional Info
Anna Chapman Parker (b.1978, York) studied Fine Art at the University of Edinburgh, and gained an MA from Wimbledon College of Art, London. Her work is concerned with immersive experiences in landscape, often using drawing to explore our relationship with wild plants in the context of contemporary concerns around digitalism, attention, the body and environmental fragility. 

Anna’s recent exhibitions include Sonikebana commissioned by Edinburgh College of Art for Edinburgh Art Festival, Imprints: Art Edits Modernism at Shandy Hall, Yorkshire and I sat till I could see no longer at Fife Contemporary Arts, St Andrews.
