The nature of Paul Cava’s work, although intimate and highly personal in its content, has been on the forward edge of a significant hi-tech image-making trend. Since the late 1970s, up to the present time, Cava has been a proponent of crossbreeding photography with non-photographic media, such as painting, drawing, and various forms of printmaking. For the past decade, Cava has immersed himself in new digital printing technologies, creating media hybrids difficult to imagine just ten years ago. Technically his work is achieved by combining, in various ways, paper and collage elements, painting and other systems of mark-making with digital photo output. He uses his own photography as well as found anonymous images in this unique process.
