Garth Henderson is an artist concerned with the evolutionary, cultural, mathematical and visual significance of plants. As an occupational horticulturist and photographer growing up in South Western Australia, Garth had a keen visual interest in elements of the local Banksia population. Their family name – Proteaceae – comes from the Greek god Proteus, who was able to change between many forms. Extreme environmental change – such as fire or human invasion – transmute, evolve and enhance the structure of living things. This process of evolutionary biology is adaptive radiation.
