Over 30 years ago, the art collector who purchased this painting “Donne Con Natura Morta” at a #DiegoVoci™ (VOH-chee) art exhibition in Sembach, #Germany re-titled it “Three Sisters” and believed the gold object at the bottom right was a block of #cheese. DiegoVoci™ had a deeper meaning awaiting discovery by the viewer. …Contemplate #death through the metaphor of a golden #fortune #cookie.
“Donne Con Natura Morta”, 1978, 31 ½ x 23 2/3
The word “Morta” is #Italian, literally translated is “Death”. However, it reverses meaning when the word “Natura” is added to “Morta” as in “Natura Morta”; translated to English is “Still Life”.
The trio of women are one. As DiegoVoci™ contemplated death in this painting; the fortune #cookie is the only “still life” object that unfolds his interpretation of one’s transition. DiegoVoci™ communicates the natural course of death as one receives a message from the “fortune cookie”. The #foreshadow of the physical form is interpreted as “lifeless” while the mind exudes a presence of life swayed by the uncertainty one’s experiences with thoughts of #transition.
The foundation of the true meaning in his creation lies in the shadows of the #spirit representing a bold apparent & non-apparent emotion of life. Is our life simply a mystery wrapped up in a fortune cookie?
