Interpretation of “Donne Con Natura Morta”

Over 30 years ago, the art collector who purchased this painting “Donne Con Natura Morta” at a #DiegoVoci™ (VOH-chee) art exhibition in Sembach, #Germany re-titled it “Three Sisters” and believed the gold object at the bottom right was a block of #cheese.  DiegoVoci™ had a deeper meaning awaiting discovery by the viewer.  …Contemplate #death through the metaphor of a golden #fortune #cookie.

C44 Donne con natura morta #281-789  1978 Bought from Townsley  31 12 x 23 23

“Donne Con Natura Morta”, 1978, 31 ½ x 23 2/3

The word “Morta” is #Italian, literally translated is “Death”.  However, it reverses meaning when the word “Natura” is added to “Morta” as in Natura  Morta”; translated to English is Still Life”.

The trio of women are one.  As DiegoVoci™ contemplated death in this painting; the fortune #cookie is the only “still life” object that unfolds his interpretation of one’s transition.  DiegoVoci™ communicates the natural course of death as one receives a message from the “fortune cookie”.  The #foreshadow of the physical form is interpreted as “lifeless” while the mind exudes a presence of life swayed by the uncertainty one’s experiences with thoughts of #transition.

The foundation of the true meaning in his creation lies in the shadows of the #spirit representing a bold apparent & non-apparent emotion of life.  Is our life simply a mystery wrapped up in a fortune cookie?

#PICASSO MEETS #ELGRECO?

In 1981, St. Albert residents, Stephen and Wendy Max presented the first Canadian showing of the work of Antonio Diego Voci.  The press paid attention:

“His (DiegoVoci™) paintings have overtones of Picasso cubist style, in harmony with an esthetic clarity suggestive of #ElGreco.” Section of article “St. Albert residents host art show”

The success of “#PICASSO MEETS #ELGRECO” stemmed into the launch of Goldcrest Galleries Ltd by Stephen Max as he became Canada’s exclusive agent for DiegoVoci™ until his death in 1985.

JUMP ON BOARD THE #DIEGOVOCI™ TIME MACHINE……1981

#StephenMax, #DiegoVoci™  #Canadian Representative, staged an exhibition of #DiegoVoci™ works of art at the Griesbach Officers Club in #Edmonton.  A #newspaper article captured the exhibition “#PICASSO MEETS #ELGRECO?”.   After the exhibition, many conversations between Diego and Stephen Max took place and the concept of promoting Diego’s works in #Canada was formed.

The agreement came together to consign DiegoVoci™ works of art while preparations of the launch of #GoldCrest Galleries LTD was established.

Stephen Max arranged more exhibits, in Helga’s words…

“Diego and I attended exhibitions of DiegoVoci™ works of art in Canada, 1981. One was the Goldcrest Galleries Ltd., in Columbus Center Toronto. The other was the Van Zoolingen Galleries in Edmonton.”

See the image of Stephen Max below along with one of #DiegoVoci™ #gallery displays in Canada.
