In the same spirit of the previous “Ebony and Ivory” post COLORBLIND SERIES 4 #COLORBLIND DIEGO ART SERIES 5
We now present a black and white LINOCUT experiment by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).
Diego was always experimenting, glass paint, sand paint, collage, and here LINOCUT. As an example of his artistic genius, I’d rate this at best a “C” plus, but not bad for the first time carving piece of linoleum. The hard part is to think in reverse: what you carve away becomes the white, and what’s left of the lino surface covered with ink and pressed to paper becomes the black.
Catch a glimpse from the publisher which may or may not be in the final layout of latest book title “Diego; An Artist of a Thousand Faces” created by Stephen Max.
We are revealing the process. This is an example of the preliminary process. Everything is malleable.
While Stephen is pulling together phases of the new publication, here is a gem created by Stephen Max of the Diego Voci Project, a museum tour of works by Diego Voci.
#DIEGO VOCI: MASTER OF #SURREALISM
“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

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/

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
#Diego went to #Africa to embrace their #culture where Black Lives Do Matter. And #Diego went to #Indian Reservation to embrace their #culture, coincidentally a dark skin tone like Diego himself. Here are 2 examples of the #colorblind paintbrushes of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).
