Cara is a visual artist based in Vancouver, B.C. Her work has been exhibited across Canada and in New York, most recently at the Reach Gallery Museum and the Burrard Arts Foundation.
Through her painting practice, Cara explores the relationship between identity construction and portraiture. Her work examines the transactional nature of portraiture: information that is given to the viewer and that which is withheld.
Through her paintings, she re-examines conventions and symbols found in historical portraiture by translating them into her current reality, in a way that disrupts their original intent.
