DIEGO’S MUSE; HELGA VOCI

Chapter One: Who is Helga Voci?

I was born in Prag, Czechoslovakia in 1939, just before the war started. My parents were Germans, at that time many Germans had been living in Czechoslovakia for generations. When the war started my father had to join the army and he was killed in 1941 in Russia, my maiden name was Drössler. In 1945 all Germans had to leave Czechoslovakia (because Hitler had lost the war) and we were brought to Germany, my family to Bavaria.

Diego Voci; Unknown Title and Unknown Collector

Every color of skin received the inspiration and talent of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-85 VOH-chee). About the turn of the decade 1960’s to 70’s was a period of experimentation with texture, sand paint, glass paint (requires cooking) and this one with several textures; a dark skinned person of wealth, and her servant.

#COLORBLIND DIEGO ART SERIES 5

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.

#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.
