THE #NOTORIETY CONTINUES FOR #ARTIST #DiegoVoci™

Content below is from page 7 of the 8 page #1974 Diego Catalog by Coop Cooprider, #DiegoVoci™#Historian.

Commentary John Krueger Writer for Stars & Stripes Part II:

“Another character that often reoccurs in DIEGO’s portraits is the #clown – earnest, ruddy peasant faces under the #white makeup and the #red rose, true #children of “LA COMMEDIA DELL’ARTE”.

The memory of the classic form, always present in the subconscious of this truly modern #artist, gives a higher meaning and a more complex form to the work of DIEGO.  His groups of figures – here again he favors young voluptuous women – produce an almost three #dimensional effect, which is achieved by a competent use of the laws of perspective rather than by optical tricks, as, in the case of the #cubist #paintings. 

Episodes and intellectual adventures, which may at times attract great curiosity and interest among public and critics, bear very little resemblance to the fundamental values of art.  Too many collective and individual phenomena dismay and disappoint art lovers looking at modern art today.  Still, there are some artists who, unaffected by trends and passing fashions, dedicate themselves to the search for truth and beauty.  DIEGO is such a man.”

YOU AND I ARE #DIEGO VOCI’S #ACTORS ON HIS #STAGE

The world and all its’ people were players on DIEGO Voci’s stage. 

What’s your interpretation of DIEGO’s “Mural” at the Voci Family Home?
Helga Voci Mural

DIEGO’s living spirit is contained in framed canvases and muraled on interior walls.

A large wall mural painted by #DIEGO still lives today at the original VOCI Family (pronounced VOH-chee) home, near Wiesbaden (Germany) where DIEGO’s widow, Helga Voci, lives today and where DIEGO lived and painted until his death on December 10, 1985.

The stories that live in DIEGO’s mind were expressed through his works of art.  What stories do you recall of DIEGO? Please email your stories to diegovociproject@gmail.com. 

You may not know when DIEGO saw you, but be sure in his mind, you were auditioning for some future performance DIEGO would direct with his magical brush on canvas.
