“Garth Henderson's contructive_botanics/banksia_grandis 02, 2017 takes a technological leap from the traditions of botanical art with a digital rendering that uses 3D computer modelling to mimic the naturally occuring structure of the Banksia grandis. The resulting image alludes to a post-natural digital future where organic structures are replicated by algorithms.” - Judges Commentary FACPrintAward 2018 Catalogue

“With a background in horticulture, Garth Henderson has an intimate knowledge of the structure and life cycles of Australia's native flora. In the forms and physiology of plants, Henderson traces the patterns, geometry and evolving mathematical permutations that naturally appear as a flower or plant grows. Henderson's pioneering use of 3D virtual modelling software as a creative space is part of an ongoing study into natural forms” - FACPrintAward 2018
