#MOVIE ON #CEZANNE, NOT A NICE MAN
Currently on the #art movie circuit is a negative view seldom noted of #Cezanne’s contankerous personality: http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2205988377?playlistId=tt5078354&ref_=tt_ov_vi
#Antonio #Diego #Voci (1920-85) never copied, but in his canvases especially in the still life genre, an educated art connoisseur can see Cezanne’s influence in Diego’s work.

“NO TOMORROWS, NO YESTERDAYS, ONLY THE #MOMENT” …#DiegoVoci™
Content in excerpt in page 4 of 8 of the 1974 Diego Catalog by Coop Cooprider, #DiegoVoci™#Historian begins with this #DiegoVoci™ Quote:
Have you done your best work yet? “No”
When will you begin? “As soon as possible.”
#DIEGO INTERVIEW, DEC. 1973.
DiegoVoci™ “The Fisherman’s Miraculous Catch” 1974 130 x 90 cm, oil on sand base canvas (experience DiegoVoci™’s unusual awareness, a wide & deep understanding of the world and the ability to make it visible as in the example of this painting above)
Notes by Coop Cooprider:
“DIEGO is an #artist. He looks like an #artist.
For DIEGO there are no tomorrows, no yesterdays, only the moment. Now is important. Enjoy.
To limit DIEGO to a “single style” is to #cage the #Lion. He can paint anything and he often does, yet there remains a strong vein, a unity and consistency in his divergent moods. #Pastel, #oil, #glass paint, #surrealism to #super-realism have all experienced the DIEGO technique – but mostly DIEGO is #people!
DIEGO #loves #people. Truly loves. People are his #life and his #work. The people on his #canvas feel. They have experienced. They have lived. They are people for which one feels compassion.
DIEGO needs canvas as well as people.
“I must to paint. To me is important the white canvas. On the canvas I can begin again. This is my life.”
There is a reluctance in DIEGO to pinpoint his early inspiration. But he has said,
“Michelangelo is the greatest There are so many. Leonardo da Vinci, Boticelli, Rembrandt, And Miro, Chagall, Picasso. So many.”
Where are the thousand words to describe a DIEGO picture? DIEGO says,
“The first idea … the first few lines decide the whole work.”
DIEGO’s first few lines are #magical. Composition comes easy. So easy. Watching DIEGO in concert with paint makes one think tying shoes would be more difficult.
Such ease. Such depth. Such strength.
DIEGO possesses an unusual awareness, a wide and deep understanding of the world, and the ability to make it visible. A DIEGO demands your attention. You may not like it, but you will be forced to react. My advice: don’t deny yourself a DIEGO. He is not “just another painter,” he is a master in the making.”

“MY LIFE TOOK ON NEW MEANING, I BECAME MORE” (After DIEGO met Helga DRÖSSLER, January 1960)
“HELGA and DIEGO” by Helga Voci
Chapter 5 #Wiesbaden, #Germany. 1968 Marriage in #Denmark.
“In Spring 1965 Diego wanted to go to #Germany and we came to #Wiesbaden where he had been living for sometime with Josiane, his ex-wife. We both liked Wiesbaden, so we rented an apartment in #Sonnenbergerstrasse. It was a beautiful place, we got it for a very low price, but had made a contract for 5 years and agreed to renovate it. So for at least 6 months we were living in the middle of sand, concrete, and tiles. But at the end we had a beautiful high ceiling living-room with open fireplace, fantastic new bathroom and a beautiful Studio. We had hand-painted and gold-plated dining-room furniture which I still have today and many beautiful paintings.
In this period #Diego found the Gallery Dahms in Wiesbaden where he exhibited and sold many paintings. He still made caricatures from time to time in #Wiesbaden, #Heidelberg and #Ramstein. There he met Joy Naffouj, a Canadian gallery owner, who was exhibiting different artists in an art show. She was very interested in Diego’s work, so he started to give her some paintings and drawings on commission.
Since his work was selling very well, they both made a contract: so many paintings for so much money per month. I believe this was when #Diego began signing with the name”Diego.” Before he had mostly signed A.Voci (Antonio Voci) or D.Voci (Diego Voci). It worked quite well.
We finally decided to marry, which we did in January 68 in #Denmark. As #Diego did not have to bother anymore about how to sell his paintings, we decided to spend the winter in the Canary Islands. We took our car in December 1968, with lots of canvases and paints of many colors. We went to #Barcelona and took the boat to Puerto del la Cruz (#Tenerife). We rented a little house on top of a big house with a very big terrace. We had a beautiful view over the ocean. We had wonderful 6 months. #Diego painted each day. Once a month we made a roll of the canvases and sent them to Joy and Jadat Naffouj in #Landstuhl, Germany.
In March 1970 the contract of our apartment in #Wiesbaden finished, the house was supposed to be sold, so Diego had the idea to move to Italy. In March 1970 we ordered a shipping company, deposited our furniture in #Bavaria at my parents` place and left for #Italy. We went to several places and finally rented a villa in Riccione at the Italia Adrian seaside. Diego was painting and still sending his paintings to Naffouj Gallery.”
