Organic Imagery

If you're new to Please Sir, first off - welcome! I always enjoy meeting a new reader. Secondly, you'll probably notice I don't carry a consistent theme of posts. It's a mix of what I'm feeling that day whether it's pretty things, interiors, fashion or art. Inspiration is everywhere and I like bringing that idea to Please Sir. Call it a desire to be well-rounded, a scattered brain, or just darn curious...I'm all of the above. I hope you enjoy the random and evolving nature of ideas and inspiration. So glad to have you here...

Ok, onto the good stuff like the amazing work by Cara Enteles. In her paintings she "explores predator/prey relationships within nature as well as the effects of man’s destructive actions on the natural world." I can see her concept through the contrast of colors and textures, yet the work still maintains a pleasing and natural fluidity. Check out more here and be sure to read the interesting information on her work. Thoughts?

I love the color orange and that first piece really brings out the artfulness of the color. Her artist statement is rather unique. Is Cara Enteles mainly based in the NYC area? I would love to see her work at a Chicago gallery.

I'm not new to your blog, but I must say that i love it. I also love these painting. The images look like they're floating off the canvases.

I just visited her site, and boy does she do some awesome work! I was really taken with her owl series. And, what great materials she uses as her canvas. Another wonderful find Diana.

i love the different surfaces she uses, which creates an interesting depth. the paintings themselves are so beautiful. i'd love to watch her create one of these to see how she layers the paint. these are really wonderful and probably one of my favs.

Krissy said...

Really stunning work!

Courtney said...

These pieces are absolutely gorgeous (even as they speak of conflict and destruction.) I love the depth in each piece and would be beyond thrilled to have any of these in my home.
