This remarkable set features four distinctive trees in the transitions they experience through Spring, Autumn, Summer and Winter. Lyndi Sales is renowned world-wide for her thought provoking multi-dimensional works in paper and installations featuring her South African homeland birds and animals.
Lyndi Sales could have been born 200 years ago, for she is one of the very few contemporary artists whose work captures the flavour of the great 17th century florigiums - very much in the style of the great botanical artist Basilius Besler.
Lyndi Sales has drawn inspiration from early Dutch flower books. Lyndi Sales draws the flowers, engraves the copperplate, hand makes the rag paper, hand strikes and colours the images and personally signs each limited edition piece. Although they are modern pieces their look and feel is very much of an antique print.
Lyndi Sales outstanding attention to detail makes these large-scale botanicals both fascinating and highly decorative. The delicate nature and colouring of these engravings makes them perfect for bedrooms and powder rooms while their size and detail is ideally suitable for living areas.
Paper Information :
Printing Process: Lyndi Sales hand creates her etchings on copper plates. She uses various etching techniques that include hard ground, soft ground and aquatint etching processes. The plates are prepared and image drawn onto the copper plate which is covered in hard ground or soft ground, after which the copper is submerged into an acid bath for the etching to take place. She hand prints the inked etching plates onto the pre soaked handmade paper.
The paper comes from a very small mill close to where Lyndi Sales lives. It is made from the reeds of the Black River which runs through Cape Town
