Having grown up in Sydney‘s Lower North Shore, artist Annalisa Ferraris knows a thing or two about urban disintegration and all the intriguing visual flaws that come with it. The National Art School graduate was initially drawn to the arts for its allowed rebellion and freedom of rigidity, and takes cues from a diverse range of topics, ranging from minimalist architecture and shitty motels, to abandoned buildings and bars. It has been a little while ago since Ferraris got her first solo show at China Heights in Sydney, but as the gallery has struck a long-term collab with Room 13, the quirky exhibition space at boutique hotel The Slow on Bali, she gets to do it all over again in a tropical yet fitting setting. The exhibition opens Sat – Jun 16 (7PM) in attendance of the artist, and presents a series of canvases that depict empty swimming pools, abandoned brutalist buildings, and still-life scenes of stubbed-out cigarettes. Location: The Slow, Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong 97 (Canggu).
