Closer Still: Spring 2023
This season we are celebrating human connections and the time it takes to build genuine relationships. Through the smallest of gestures or the loudest of declarations, discover the beauty in what brings us together. Embracing shared values and conversations with strangers, we explore what ties us to one another.
We invited our friend Carla Uriarte, a self-proclaimed “artist of the hearts,” to explore the theme of relationships this season. Born in the Philippines, raised in America and based in Sydney, Australia — Carla’s global perspective brings a new lens to creative endeavours, whether that is in her role as co-founder of Surry Hills’s beloved Cafe Freda’s, or being commissioned by Ganni to create an artwork for their Sydney store. As a previous Incu collaborator, we thought the playfulness and curious style of her work leant itself really well to the story we were trying to tell. We approached her to create artwork that delved into the concept of relationships and offered insight into the meaningful connections we build over time. The result is heartfelt, personal and uniquely Carla. Visit our Incu stores to see Carla’s artwork.
