Paul Cava
Floral Study 13: still life color photograph w/ dried flowers on black field

2019

About the Item

This is an archival pigment print depicting an abstracted still life printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308 gsm by artist Paul Cava. It is from the "Flora" series, which is one of three series, along with his "Still Life" and his "Table Top" series, making up a larger body of work produced between the years 2019-2021. The leading actor in this three-part drama is the late afternoon light with the supporting cast being the objects of his attention -- a deer antler, a dying flower, plaster casts of his daughter’s hand and foot, the various vessels and forms in relation to each other as the light moves across their surfaces. Image size is approx. 15 x 11” printed on 19 x 13” sheets, edition of 10. Also available as image size approx. 19 1/2 x 13”, printed on 22 x 17” sheets, edition of 10 ($2,500) - listed separately. Signed, titled, dated and numbered lower margin. Brooklyn-born artist Paul Cava began his career as an artist in the late 1960's. Cava made his first explorations as a poet, multi-media artist, filmmaker, photographer and painter. He finally settled in the last three decades on a hybrid form of expression that synthesized his previous efforts and anticipated the current digital use of photography by combining photographs, words, collage, drawing, painting, and printmaking into his own visual language, the core of which is a personal visual poetry. Cava has exhibited paintings, drawings and photo-based works from 1976 to the present in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe. His work has been collected by a broad range of private and public institutions, including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Princeton University Museum of Art, and The Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. His work has been featured in many publications including "Eyemazing Magazine" and "Das Magazin." Cava was a recipient of Pennsylvania Council on the Arts grants in 1981 and 1999. In 2005, the German publisher Edition Galerie Vevais released "Walt Whitman and Paul Cava / Children of Adam," a deluxe volume of Cava’s photo-based art and Walt Whitman’s poetry. The artist’s second book, "Paul Cava: Photographs Collages Montages" covers mostly previously unpublished photographs, collages and montages made between the years 1979-2019.

    Located in Glendale, CA
    Adam D. Tihany & Joseph Mancini K6 'Wassily' Blown Glass Table Lamp for Foscarini Designed in 1985 by Adam D. Tihany & Joseph Mancini and produced by Foscarini, the Italian lighting firm founded in Venice on the legendary island of Murano, where generations of master glass blowers have skillfully used their unmatched imagination and skill to create the most innovative works of light into the modern era. Inspired by the painterly works of Kandinsky and the ballet theater of the Bauhaus, the celebrated 'Wassily' series was conceived as illuminated sculptures rather than lamps, produced by composing solid forms in primary colors, held together by polished metal mountings. These are new old stock from an extremely limited run 20th anniversary re-edition that was recently discovered in the Foscarini warehouse, still new in box and retaining all their original packaging and contents. These iconic Memphis style lamps...
