Lyndi Sales

Lyndi Sales was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1973. She acquired an MA from the University of Cape Town (2000), and a BA in Fine Art (1995) from the University of Cape Town, both with distinction.

For the past seven years Lyndi has been employed as a visiting lecturer in the Fine Art Department at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town. She lectures in the Printmaking Department where she also teaches printmaking and book arts. For the past two years Lyndi has given book arts workshops to students in the Fine Art Department at the University of Stellenbosch. Lyndi Sales was the Merit Award Winner in the ABSA Atelier Art Competition where she was awarded the PARTage residency in Mauritius (2007).

Drawing on the subtleties of cartography, the intricacies of collage, the fragile properties of materials (paper, wood, string) and universally accessible symbols, Sales gives visual expression to philosophically profound questions. Her personal stake in this exploration of chance and destiny is the loss of her father in a plane crash. By assiduously avoiding reference to this point, and understating political indictment, Sales succeeds in provoking private musings on human vulnerability to the whims of fate.

Lyndi currently lives and works in Cape Town.
