cara is a career artist who works with acrylics, watercolours and spray paint on reclaimed / sustainable or found materials uncovered in unusual places.
deconstruct. reconstruct. 2D sculpture
her artistic curriculum leans towards 2D/3D abstract works (wall-sculpture paintings and free-standing sculptures) using wood, clay, fabric, paper and metals, as a vocabulary of emotions. her works tend to follow a narrative journey told in a series that express a different view of the world. the goal is to capture something deeper, exploring all sensibilities. the artist combines many techniques, including woodworking, to create the artworks.
sustainability and upcycling are reflected heavily in her practice. they underline the unspoken beauty of found materials in its most natural or decayed form – the beautiful colours and diversified patterns are purposeful in more ways than one. she also incorporates the emotions of each collective series through graphics and music in the artistic statement.
her work has been exhibited in private and public shows since her first exhibition l_st & found in 2013, Singapore. In 2020, A State Of Mind collection and Lucid Dream series were held in two private virtual shows for family office clients. In 2021, she held her third sold-out private show, Zero, presenting a collection of 20 wall-sculptures. cara has exhibited at the multimedia mads gallery in milan for the philo-poem show, and was selected to participate in the XXI florence biennale. cara also supports minority-run and indie spaces / shows, such as kunstwerk gallery (varel, germany). 2021 ushers a program-packed calendar at various spaces in the next 24 months.
