WHERE IS THE MERMAID?

#DIEGO VOCI: MASTER OF #SURREALISM

Diego Voci; Le Sirene #14925 60x80cm ca. 1974

Le Sirene” (English translation means “The Mermaid”) painted in 1974 by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) was sold to Captain Brown of Ramstein, Germany. 

Could that be any relation to Dr. Odgen Brown who represented Diego in USA starting 1973 and gave his first big exhibition at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado?  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#Exhibitions_in_the_US

“We own two Diego Voci paintings. We are so happy that this project was started because we could never find any information on who our “Diego” was!

Thank you, Caroline & John”

#ARTIST & #COLLECTOR “EMPATHY FOR FACES”

Diego Voci; “Three Faces” oil on canvas

The Diego Voci Project Team received a letter from Diego Collector; Dan Wilking with one of his internationally collected artist Diego Voci (1920-1985) works of art titled “Three Faces“. Here are the words from Dan to Coop Cooprider; Diego Voci Art Historian

“During the period 1970-1973, I was stationed at the 10th Med Lab in Landstuhl (Germany). We purchased several paintings at the Naffouj Gallery in Landstuhl. Yes, Joy Naffouj introduced me to Diego. He was dark of complexion, had shoulder length hair, and wore a neat leather jacket. We exchanged greetings and that was that. The empathy on the faces of the pictured men drew me to it. The Berlin Wall and Russian episode of that time perhaps were an influence. – Dan Wilking”

Stephen Max, Creative Genius with Diego Voci Project Team is working the latest publication titled “Diego, Artist of a Thousand Faces“. Due out August 10, 2020 the 100th year celebration of Diego’s birth.

Renaissance Noir
Online through July 3 at UTA Artist Space

What the gallery says: “‘Renaissance: Noir’ investigates Blackness on the continuum of the historiographies of African American artists’ narratives that assert, individually and collectively, their state-of-mind and state-of-being Black. An existence of ‘double consciousness,’ as coined by W.E.B. DuBois, where one is constantly combating the ‘isms’—racism, colorism, sexism, capitalism, colonialism, escapism, and criticism—through the act of artistic activism. https://news.artnet.com/exhibitions/renaissance-noir-at-uta-1885608

#COLORBLIND PAINTBRUSHES SERIES ONE
