This edition has been produced on the occasion of Tamara Henderson's exhibition Green in the Grooves at Camden Art Centre, 2023.

About the work
Henderson, has made a diptych to accompany her exhibition Green in the Grooves. Based on a series of automatic drawings titled True Leaves, they relate to the emergence of a plant’s specific appearance in secondary leaves that follow the earlier tissues it creates to photosynthesise - to ‘eat’ enough light to develop into its true form. Henderson’s exhibition has grown from the concerns she explored in these early experimental drawings: the growth cycle of plants through from soil and seed to propagation, germination, and returning again to the soil through decomposition. The cartoon drawing of a wizard relates to one of the central archetypes structuring the exhibition: The Director. A self-portrait of sorts, the magician conjures a world into being and is the all-seeing eye behind a major new film commission featuring in Camden’s Gallery 1.
