About the Artist

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.
Enteles is a 20 year resident of the U​pper Delaware Valley which is the source of inspiration for her work. 
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.”

Enteles's work is exhibited nationwide and in Europe. The Artist is featured in many Public Collections including Microsoft, The Norwegian Cruise Line, Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and as well as numerous private collections. She is currently working on a large public commission that will be a laminated glass train Station for the MTA Arts and Design.
Awards include Guest Artist at Singinawa Tiger Preserve, Kanha, India, 2011, inclusion in the Art in Embassies program, a Fellowship to the Julia & David White Artist's Colony, 2005, a studio at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts 2004-2008, and a grant from the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance Fellowship for the Visual Arts, 2002.
Her work has been shown at Wave Hill, The Hudson Valley Contemporary Art Center, The Long Island Museum and The Islip Art Museum. She earned her BFA from Parsons School of Design and has also studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts.
She is represented by Amy Simon Fine Art in Connecticut, Sara Nightingale Gallery in New York and Walker Fine Art in Denver. In the UK and Europe she is represented by Strange Tracey Gallery.
