Garth Henderson graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Curtin University in 1987, with majors in printmaking and photography. After an extended period overseas, he returned to Western Australia to study and advance a career in horticulture. At this time he started to take a particular interest in the the native flora of Australia. After completion of an Advanced Diploma in Multimedia from RMIT, Melbourne, in 2003, Garth began to embrace the possibilities of the 3D modelling as a logical interpretation of the traditional photographic process.
As a visual artist, Garth is particularly concerned with the evolutionary, cultural, mathematical and visual significance of plants. Current works reconstruct the unique geometric permutations of Australian flora as organic architecture. His creative tools use the algorithms and physics engines associated with computational reality simulations and virtual sculpting.
