HUMOR CAPTURED FROM 1973

Marsha Largent Piper (daughter of Dr. Ogden Brown, collector of Diego Voci and once USA agent for Diego Voci) just sent the Diego Voci Project an image of herself with Diego during the 1973 Diego Voci Exhibition at the Broadmoor in Boulder, Colorado.  Marsha recalls laughing often with Diego.   

In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He experimented with Glass paint right in the Brown’s kitchen.  Diego cooked and painted with glass paint. Yes Diego had to “cook” the glass paint.

From Marsha’s collection here is a wild example by Diego:

Diego Voci; “Exotic Fishes” #668 Glass Paint on Linen 60 x 70 cm

GLASS PAINT = THE ART OF COOKING AT HIGH HEAT!

Le Vinage #10802-109 Maj. Pizzo Spangdahlem 1980

Diego Voci; “Le Visage” 40x30cm #10802-109 Glass Paint

Glass paint is a very difficult medium that for several months challenged Diego. In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He cooked and painted with glass paint in front of Brown’s daughters Lynda and Marsha. Yes, Diego had to cook the glass paint. Here is one example called “Le Visage = The Face”, rich in color & full of expression, just like Diego himself, always challenging himself and pushing to paint outside the box.

#DIEGO, THE INNOVATOR INCESSANTLY EXPERIMENTING

From the DIEGO Voci Collection ca. 1974, a piece from his glass painting series, the painting titled “Women and Blue Pottery” is done with Glass Paint on canvas.

DIEGO defies being put in a box.  He was constantly experimenting.  Glass paint was a real challenge.  There is no second chance to change the paint once it hits the canvas.  DIEGO’s sure hand is all the more evident in “Women and Blue Pottery”, one of a dozen known DIEGO works with glass paint.
