“The image of the human body dominates our lives, its visual legacy starts with the first human artistic endeavour and exists in all cultures all over the world. Yet it remains for modern humans uncomfortable, the media has appropriated it and trivialized it, but it is fundamental to the vision of who and what we are. It is interesting to descend in to a silent world through the making of a picture and its ambiguous meaning. The mystery in the language of the human body, every shape and gesture communicates, and that is unbearable.” – Pietro Capogreco
“Dall’Ava’s aesthetic embraces that of Dada and Surrealism, adopting the techniques of chance and the processes of collage and assemblage as a way of transforming both the meaning and the context of the original, into new and fantastical forms. For Dall’Ava these surrealist techniques provide a methodology for integrating disparate elements and ideas into a perverse and poetic coherence” – Penny Teale
