Kurzbeschreibung des Herstellers:

Der Zyklus "Children of Adam" aus dem berühmten Buch "Grashalme" von Walt Whitman: Er handelt von der nicht zu bändigenden Kraft aus der Motivation von "Native Moments" - es ist eine Hymne der Hoffnung, eine Nation des neuen Amerikas wachsen und gedeihen zu sehen. Paul Cava schuf dazu vor sexueller Energie strotzende Bildepen voller metaphorischer Weite. Kai Grehn (u.a. Übersetzung von Texten von Nick Cave und William Blake) besorgte die Neuübertragung.
". Paul Cava's work invites us to a garden of earthly delights but reminds us of its proximity to the garden of heavenly delights. Looking at his work is rather like listening to the music of Charles Ives, another American seer who was just as unusual, brilliant, and original as Walt Whitman and Paul Cava. At first Ives's music sounds a bit strange, but when we listen we realize we know the tune, and when we listen carefully we often realize we are in the presence of a hymn.", Prof. John Wood
".Throughout this artist's 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 asks us to put aside the critical faculties, to open ourselves to the grandeur and the depth of feeling within each of us. Perhaps the greatest breakthrough in this particular body of work is that 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
