Best Of Flora & Fauna: Garth Henderson

Art Edit presents a curated selection of artists whose work is inspired by nature.

The architectural background of Garth Henderson – who moved to Melbourne to study 3D modelling before embarking on his subsequent vocations as horticulturalist and artist – is clear upon viewing his meticulous, geometric renditions of Australian flora. In his works, beauty is not just found in colour and form; it is also found in the complex mathematical constructs and organic architecture of our native plants.

At the beginning of each work, Garth will take a physical specimen of the plant he’s working on and literally deconstruct it, a process that allows him to start building its individual components using a virtual sculpting program. These virtual models are then subjects to the same lighting physics that exist within a photographic studio. The final images are then presented as limited edition archival prints on museum paper.
