The uniqueness of Louise Cara’s technique lies in her choice of materials and tools. It is expressed by the exclusive use of an intense deep black Japanese ink and a unique pigment, slate, fixed by a natural binder. The graphism of her painting is made of signs and tracings mainly drawn by a spatula and calligraphy brushes. Louise Cara seeks to strike a balance in oppositions: black/white, full/empty, flexible/hard, horizontal/vertical, as if to graphically install a harmony of contrasts.

Son livre « Carnet de mots - Abécédaire d'atelier » est paru en mai 2019 à l'occasion de son exposition « Terres de lumière » qui a eu lieu au Château de Gordes en et juin et juillet 2019.
