Born 1965 in Cannes (France). Lives and works in Venice (Italy).
Venetian painter David
Dalla Venezia will assist the live performances during the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, and
realize drawings directly from the actions.
His figurative paintings
depict what could be seen as performative moments: what for Dalla Venezia are
notions of reflection on contemporary man, could actually be a concrete piece
of performance in oil on canvas. Depicting the human body, Dalla Venezia places
it in a context of space, objects and action. His paintings are of a limitness
compositional energy, subjecting a pitiless reflection about identity. He
offers an image 'other but concrete' of a quasi-perfection in constant
movement, an ineffable something that allows the spirit to detach itself from
the apparent viscosity of that which shows itself as 'discouraging bourgeois
stability'. The juxtapositioning of objects, the vision of a world that stands
just beyond the threshold of physical truth, the exploration of the inner,
unconscious, imagined, life through elements that are a familiar or of common
use: their solidity, their separation in the space that is assigned to them on
the canvas, the secret confrontation or dialogue that can take place between
the various elements is not only an index of an attention to the simplicity of
ordinary data, but also the verification of the style that leans heavily and
with elegance on the most hidden state of being.
