Milton's Cottage Garden

I am showing new work in an outdoor exhibition at Milton's Cottage - the only surviving residence of the poet and parliamentarian, John Milton, and the place where he completed Paradise Lost.

The garden has been planted with flowers, trees and herbs that are referenced in his poetry and artists have been asked to create small-scale, site specific artworks that respond to his writings about gardens (including the Garden of Eden) as well as the garden itself.

I am showing mirrors in the flowerbeds of the gardens which are etched with Milton's handwriting. Each mirror has a different quote of Milton's about flowers.
