Dall’ava uses natural materials, juxtaposing shape, placement, colour, and angles to assemble a poised whole. Each piece is a conversation between all the different components; between the inclusion of found objects, with their inherent element of chance and their purposeful positioning to create an artwork of elegance and lyricism. There is a sense of playfulness and intimacy to Dall’Ava’s work, where the lightness and spiritedness of each piece belies the reality of the heavy weight of marble. Dall’Ava pushes the boundaries of the materials he uses, creating evocative shapes, with fine points and delicate circles precariously balancing unexpected shapes in seemingly impossible poses.
