Cindy and Norm Ferland share with the Diego Voci Project Team two of their three works by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee) 1920-1985.
“We talked about where he (Diego) gets his ideas for paintings. He (Diego) told me that he sees a person and maybe weeks or a month later he will paint that person in his interpretation. Also we talked about the still life he painted because I had one of those and he (Diego) said he had seen a pot of flowers and he just thought he would try to paint it.” – Norm Ferland
An extraordinary video created by Stephen Max (volunteer for The Diego Voci Project). Go behind the scenes in Antonio Diego Voci’s (VOH-chee 1920-1985) studio. Each day when Diego painted was always a mystery as to what he would create because his skills and talents were outside the bounds of one style.
“Each movement had its great masters, but there are very few who could create art unconfined by a single style like Diego.” – Christopher Voci.
Words from Canadian Collector James Thomson who shares his interpretation of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH- chee) painting titled “Women Working in the Field”
“This painting was done in very Earthy Brown values of Colour. Three Women gleaning the Harvest. Vincent Van Gogh was captivated by the artistic work of Jean-Francois Millet. I believe that Diego was also attracted by Millet’s paintings of the hard working poor. Diego, I believe captured the essence of these gleaners’ painted as though they are covered by the soil that they must through to salvage wheat or other produce after a Harvest. Van Gogh’s masterpiece of “The Potato Eaters” and other harvesting paintings he did were I’m sure inspired by Millet’s body of works. So I’m very happy to have this somewhat different Oil of Women with Bowed Backs, dirty gowns and aprons foraging to collect food for their families.”
Note: this painting is the only known painting with a wax stamp. The wax stamp says “Naffouj Gallery”, who represented Antonio Diego Voci from 1966-1970
