#DIEGO COLLECTOR FOUND IN #CALIFORNIA

3 years ago, we the DIEGO VOCI PROJECT posted an exquisite artwork by Antonio DIEGO Voci asking “Where is it Now?” We heard nothing. So, I (Kami Cooprider) happened to see the Index Card which #Helga_Voci created to track #DIEGO’s sales over the years, shown below the true color image here: “Arlequin sur la Plage” by #DIEGO

Arlequin sur la Plage” by DIEGO_VOCI (161-433, 20 x 24 in. Overall size 26.25 x 30.25 in.)

I decided to search for the owner’s name on the card. Low and behold there was a man of the same name right nearby in Chula Vista, CA – just miles down the road from San Diego. Making a photocopy, I snail-mailed the images to Gene A. and gave him our DVP phone number! 2 days later the call came in. Gene was as surprised by our mail as we were to hear back from him. YES, he still owned this exquisite oil painting “Arlequin sur la Plage” and it graces Gene’s walls still today! And,he owns 2 more #DIEGO artworks!

Better still is the story Gene shared about how, while visiting with DIEGO, he noticed there was a trace of a figure on the wall on the left next to the #Harlequin:

So, Gene asked DIEGO to paint over it some before taking it home. Yet, here we are 40 years later and the figure is starting to slowly reappear according to Gene. The next day Gene sent an image of the back of the canvas – here you see it. DIEGO often painted over canvases and always said, You don’t ask yourself what day do you have the idea… it grows from yourself.” – DIEGO Quote from Victoria Williams article 1974.

Diego Voci; “Stillife with Green Bottle” #484 oil on canvas ca. 1966-67

The lesson learned Dear Reader! Keep your eyes open, for you also may find a cubistic masterwork by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (920-9185).

This Diego Voci example of cubism is museum worthy. The new owner states:

“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! We love our paintings and are not interested in selling. We were wondering if you (DVP) were interested in having photos of them for the projects’ catalogue? Please let us know. Thank you, Caroline & John”

Yes. The Diego Voci Project is delighted to include your works into the official Diego Voci Archive with the Diego Voci Estate. To view more cubistic works by Diego click here: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/cubism-diegovocitm/

In this wonderful painting, I puzzle, is there life here that does not matter?
Internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) embraced a rainbow of humanity in his masterful works. How about a gay couple adopting a black child? Does only one life matter? More colorblind Diego Voci artworks to come..Stay tuned https://www.diegovociproject.com/

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
