Cara Enteles
  • Painting
  • Silkscreen printing

Cara Enteles is best known for her nature, landscape paintings on Aluminum and plexiglas panels.

“My work is the result of my fascination and study of the natural world.” She has developed a unique technique that combines silkscreen printing and oil painting on these industrial substrates. The aluminum has a reflective ground that changes with the light, mimicking the natural world. The acrylic is built up in transparent layers painting on multiple sides to create great depth.

“I am influenced by Turner and the Hudson River school, looking for a modern way to create depth and light in landscape. Working on these surfaces lets the substrate become a more active part of the message.”

Underlying these seemingly beautiful paintings, Enteles infuses her thoughts on environmental issues. “In my mind the trees and plants of the paintings represent nature as a being. They exude power that man continually tries to manipulate. I aim to be an advocate for nature.”
