By day, I’m a Digital consultant working in an exciting and pressurised media environment. My head is abuzz with little time for quiet contemplation. Lindnr is an effort to take my Self offline. Drawing and ceramics are therapeutic and unhurried, the perfect way to shut out my busy work life.
In a previous life, colour photography was my passion. Today my tools of choice are pen and ink, paper and clay - a kind of “back to basics”. I work mostly in monotone, using colour only as an accent.
My subjects too are uncomplex. Inspired by nature and my love of birds and flowers, my work is deliberately lighthearted and playful. Flora White was my maternal grandmother who, it's said, always surrounded herself with fresh flowers. The Lindner family were rose lovers and I grew up surrounded by talk of gardens and everything Roses. Think wallpaper, fabrics, crockery, paintings - everything - all in the style of naturalists and botanical illustrators such as Redouté, Merian, Audubon, Haeckel and local SA art icon Tretchikoff. Choose from illustrated Flora White Botanicals, avian prints or Cape flora inspired Photo-botanicals.
As a child I spent many hours alone exploring the coastline of False Bay. And sun-burnt days at sea, fishing for tuna and crayfish. Mamawati is a twist on the name of the African water spirit “Mother Water”. The Mamawati Marine Life series celebrates water as a vital life force as well as the endless variation of sea life. One can’t help but marvel at nature’s inventiveness in the struggle for survival.
WHO’S IT FOR?
What started as a purely selfish endeavour has grown, through encouragement, into a commercial offering. A typical Kapie, I love my city, the sea, mountain and bright blue skies. My work is for creative souls like myself, who find beauty in the every day, in the world around us - our land, seas and skies.
