It's one of our favourite places to visit when in Bali. A true island experience, The Slow incorporates boutique accomodation, all-day dining, drinks, art, local culture and interactive retail - all set on the coast of Canggu. As they say themselves, a stay at The Slow is an immersive experience; it's a place to rest your bones, stir your senses, and expand your mind
And so it is that in collaboration with Sydney's China Heights, Otis Hope Carey, an influential contemporary Australian Artist, is set to launch a solo exhibition at The Slow on Saturday the 6th of October.
Throughout his artwork, Carey's cultural roots and the Gumbaynggir People are deeply reflected. The Gumbaynggir People are an Australian Aboriginal group on the mid-north coast of New South Wales.
'The contour lines and movement of his work create a powerful viewing experience which marries visual immediacy with the spiritual and conceptual nature of Carey's contemporary practice'.
Carey is known and praised for his personal narratives and detailed experiences, which is depicted through his work. He is also praised for his ode to indigenous influence, as well as the Op Art Movement of the 1960s.
Otis Hope Carey is also known for his creativity in the waves, grabbing attention internationally with his unorthodox surfing style; his eye for fashion has him working with multiple brands, including, Ellery, M/SF/T and Billabong.
Carey has recently been admired for his public persona and bravado through topics such as men's mental health, making him a cultural icon.
'Carey's opening at The Slow marks his first exhibition in Indonesia, which will be open to the public until the 1st of December'.
