Walt Whitman and Paul Cava
Children of Adam from Leaves of Grass
“...Throughout his oeuvre, Paul Cava’s work celebrates both the universality of human experience and its specificity. “In its reverence for ‘the happy accident’, its quest to transcend the boundaries of time and place, to distill the emotional resonance of an image or a moment, his art, like Whitman’s words, asks us to open ourselves to the grandeur and the depth of feeling within each of us…Cava achieves not only a seamless technical fluidity, but an ability to manipulate imagery and association with a delicacy of touch, a generosity of spirit and a tenderness for the absurdity of our predicament that come only with artistic and personal maturity... Indeed, it is nearly impossible to stand before the naked images in this body of work and not feel naked as well, for in their purity and integrity, in their own vulnerability and humanity, they reach beyond our carefully tended boundaries and touch the part of us that despite its own better judgment, loves and lives for love...” Arden Kass
