Cara Enteles

Using a unique technique that blends silkscreen printing and oil painting, Cara Enteles layers boldly silhouetted botanical forms inspired by her surroundings and travels. This practice traces back to her childhood when she pressed and painted wildflowers she collected on bike rides. Enteles employs industrial supports such as aluminum and acrylic, which act as reflective surfaces to capture sunlight while also creating an inherent tension between the work’s organic subject matter and its materials. “My work is the visual diary of an ongoing fascination with the natural world,” she says.
