4 DIEGO VOCI TREASURES FOUND AT ESTATE SALE – NUMBER 2

Diego never left the significance of his religious upbringing far behind. Diego carries it with him throughout his life in his artistic creations, sometimes quite obvious and intended, sometimes more subtly hidden. Tom Catron now owns this masterpiece:ALLTAG for POST w Title et al 6 APR 2018

ALLTAG” shown above presents the observer with the every-day activities of a little town (“Alltag” = every day life) in rich colors, details of the mundane which give them another day to look forward too. Going to market, catching up on the town news, sitting in a café, having lunch, or simply walking about.

If you look closely, to the top right, take note of the small alcove which houses a religious figure holding something in its arms. Two things come to mind, which DIEGO so wonderfully rendered: Saint Antonio (Diego’s namesake) with baby Jesus and/or Mother and Child. Cleverly tucked away, DIEGO places the alcove with heartfelt intent.

Diego captured every day activities because he could relate to them. His matriarch grandmother Messina Arcangela and the family were devout Catholics. As a young boy with his father in Rome, Diego arrived at home only to carve his first small religious artifact since he’d seen one in a shop window.

Diego also sincerely depicts “Mother and Child” (“Maternité”) in hundreds of paintings and other media, as well as artworks of monks and Christ. Religion was simply part of  Antonio DIEGO Voci’s every day life: “ALLTAG”. See more on DIEGO and his family on our Pinterest Boards: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/
