Mixed media and beeswax on stitched Japanese printing paper
In 1629 John Parkinson published a book by this title, the first English treaties on horticulture subtitled
A Garden of all sorts of pleasant flowers which our
English ayre will permit to be nourished up

Based on the Persian ideals of symmetry this work
took that symmetry and gardened the wild flowers
of one village across the boundaries.

It is possible that the words of the 19th C naturalist John Muir have never been so pertinent as they are today. He undoubtably viewed the natural world from within nature saying, ‘Most people are on the world not in it: From our position within a global, yet increasingly disparate culture, perhaps it is timely to ask where we place ourselves in relation to the nature of our surrounding environments?

Sat 4Aug to 4Sept : exhibition curated by susie goodwin & amy winstanley

The theme and ethos of this open exhibition is inspired by John Muir’s writing and has drawn together 28 established and emerging contemporary artists and poets from across Scotland and beyond.

Drawing & painting, sculpture, film and artists books are installed within the whitewashed stone walls of, what would previously have been John Muir’s garden, individual works contributing to a burgeoning ecological dialogue embedded in the very fabric of this place, John Muir’s Birthplace in Dunbar.
