– Special Reserve –

I’ve got a solo exhibition coming up on Nov 8th with the good folks at Kind Of Gallery. Please feel free to come past if your in the area.

 

 

Please join us for the opening of kind of —’s second solo show by Will Lynes, 6 – 9pm

Will’s work is reminiscent of an era and trade long past. Influenced by old original hand painted signs, Will uses modern slang, gold gilding and

ageing techniques to re-create traditional signage of yester year. With references to fictional businesses and colloquialisms inspired from days gone by,

Will’s work will invoke a sense of history in the gallery.

Lynes will use glass and found objects as his mediums and will cr

eate an installation to be remembered. Will has been working with glass for the last 2 years, and painting signage on boards and found objects for the last 4 years.

“ …. it was seeing all the old bars and shops with their original signage. Places in the middle of nowhere, all run down and dilapidated… still having half a gold leaf or

neon sign on the window that looked like it had been there for a hundred years. You get a weird sense that there was a story or history behind it. They just had
amazing character to them so I started trying to replicate that feeling. It’s cool to do a brand new gilt or hand painted sign on a window, but there’s something nicer
to me about a sign that looks like it can tell a story… good or bad.”

*A limited edition Special Reserve tee-shirt by Will Lynes, kind of — and Design Tshirts Store graniph will be released at the opening night.

– QT Hotel Sydney –

Here are a couple of progress shots of some things I’ve been working on for the QT Hotel Sydney. Some signage for Gowings Bar and Grill using both 23 and 16 Krt gold leaf and with a pretty impressive fish in the background. I also had to paint a little sign on an old vintage lamp for the Parlour Lane Cafe.
