Forbidden Fruit and Psychedelic Photomontages: South Place Hotel welcomes artists Lynnie Z and Vince Fraser
South Place Hotel is introducing works from talented, contemporary artists, Lynnie Z and Vince Fraser. From this week, the pieces will adorn the walls of the hotel entrance and the first floor.
The appreciation of art forms a core pillar to the ethos of South Place Hotel. This new collection is the first installation of 2019 within the luxury five-star hotel’s artist in residence programme, which aims to showcase creative work from exciting, up-and-coming artistic talent.
The hotel’s first floor will be transformed by the bold and bright colours of Lynnie Z’s art. Her ‘Forbidden Fruit’ collection will portray beguiling muses and powerful femme fatale, depicting women from the perspective of the female gaze as empowered and implicitly sensuous figures. The artwork adopts her distinctive energetic style and displays her explorative interpretations of women and their mystical allure.
London-based visual artist, illustrator and designer, Vince Fraser will introduce three of his psychedelic photomontages, which will each be projected in the entrance of the property for two- month rotations. The first will be ‘Parallel Love’ which – like much of Fraser’s work – is vibrant, evocative and rooted in 1970s pop culture. His classic monochromatic style compliments the sleek colour palette in the hotel foyer.

After enjoying the collection, art-lovers can kick back and relax with a gin cocktail in-hand in South Place Hotel’s Secret Garden. Currently themed as an ‘Enchanted Garden’ until the end of April, refreshments are available from Martin Miller’s Gin. The decorated space takes inspiration from the change of season to Spring, as well as this gin’s botanicals. Guests can even garnish their concoctions with hand-picked garnishes from the living wall. The Enchanted Garden neighbours the work of Lynnie Z on the first floor, and bold hanging blooms from the ceiling in the garden make for the perfect pairing to her bright and sensual art.
“It’s great to be collaborating with South Place Hotel, who are known for their commitment to the arts”, said Lynnie Z. “This is generating a fresh perspective in a new space with new people.”
Artist Vince Fraser commented: “having a genuine interest in architecture and interior design, I think my work blends beautifully with the hotel, and shares the same contemporary twist, whilst being evocative at the same time.”
