Artist and writer Anna Chapman Parker has created a limited edition pair of prints, which take as their subject the green space around CAMPLE LINE where Anna spent time drawing as a visiting artist in 2023.

The edition pair, Grass-hour, Cample Line I & II, each focus on the same entanglement of grasses and plants. Grass-hour, Cample Line I is a drawing in ink made from direct observation. Seedheads of grasses, small fronds of yarrow leaf, dried filaments of cow parsley, their stems abruptly browning halfway up, fill the entirety of a page in her sketch book. A few rain drops on the surface record that moment in time. Anna has described this ‘rapid negotiation of stem and leaf’, registering what she can and ‘filling the page with lines that map out some of what she sees’.

From her ink drawing of this patch of grass (identifiable to Anna whenever she returns to it by a flattened scrap of turf), a smaller graphite drawing emerged on her return to her studio. In Grass-hour, Cample Line II, the white of the paper itself becomes the forms of the stems and leaves, and the much more slowly, densely-worked graphite marks are suggestive of the depth and partial nature of the entanglement she is describing.


Anna Chapman Parker is an artist and writer based in Northumberland. Her work is concerned with acts of focused observation, exploring how we record and report periods of looking within the increasingly mediated culture of the attention economy. She uses a variety of materials and methods from ink drawing to digital media, often navigating uncertain relationships between drawing and text.

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. Her writing has appeared in Happy Hypocrite, MAP and Rake’s Progress. Understorey: A Year Among Weeds, her first book was published by Duckworth Books in June 2024. She was a visiting artist to CAMPLE LINE in 2023.
