From bold paintings and simple and elegant line drawings, to experimental collages and large wall murals, Lynnie Z‘s latest exhibition at The Book Club highlights the spontaneity of the East London-based artist’s fervent creative process.
Showcasing a comprehensive body of work, Z’s vibrant and energetic creations—a medley of mysterious, seductive creatures and powerful femme fatales regularly rendered in ravishing bolts of bright colour—can be found throughout the Shoreditch venue; including the beloved ping pong room where her artworks have been applied to a custom-made (by Art of Ping Pong) ping pong table and interactive space.
Growing up on the Scottish Borders with a love of cultures and a magnetism for people, pattern, and colour, Lynnie Z chooses a process that allows ideas and experiments to develop instinctively—embracing fresh, uncontrived ideas and allowing personalities to evolve naturally into striking and engaging images. “I like to see my work as an informal journey,” she explains. “I want to capture the raw ethereal atmospheres that evolve naturally in an image, which can sometimes get lost later on in the process.“
Bright, bold, and brilliant, Lynnie Z Studio is a free exhibition running at The Book Club until 17 February, 2019. Dedicated followers of first-class illustrative art mustn’t miss this ode to creative spontaneity.
