* * * ARTIST BIOGRAPHY * * *
I am a survivor who believes in the inexorable power of the human spirit. I am a believer who has seen through tragedy into the eye of the setting sun knowing that the morrow can bring a new and brighter day. I am a compassionate human being who empathizes with the suffering of others and wants to be there for them. And I do this by writing transformational stories filled with characters that are imbued with passion and love.
I was born in California. When I was five, my parents divorced. Shortly after, my father abducted me. He put me in the trunk of a car where I held on to a plastic cane filled with candy as I lay spread eagle on my stomach. From Tijuana Mexico, I was flown to Torremolinos Spain where I was left in a dreary and secluded all girl catholic boarding school for several years during which time I didn't see my mother.
When I was nine, my paternal grandmother took me to Mexico City for two years. There I was exposed to the mysticism and magic of the native Indian cultures. After returning to Spain, I finally came back to the United States. I was a teenager who couldn't speak English. Happily, I saw my mother again. But sadly, six months after my return, she disappeared in a flood. Her body was never found.
I went to ten schools in three countries for the first twelve years including five high schools. During this time, I had to contend with a father whose mental illness and drug and alcohol addictions caused him to be a dangerous sadist. I was barely eighteen years old when I ran away from home because he threatened to kill me with a 38 revolver.
Within two weeks, I found a job and bought a car. I moved into the dorms at the University of California at Irvine. From there, I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Linguistics and the ability to speak six languages. While at UCI, I met and married a medical student. My first pregnancy ended in stillbirth. Notwithstanding this and other hardships I enrolled and graduated from UCLA Law School.
We moved to Texas and while I was raising my children, I graduated from the University of Texas Dallas where I received a Masters Degree in Arts and Humanities. There I took several writing courses. At this time, I began a career as a visual/writing artist. My artwork, mostly surrealist, is about women in contemporary society and includes extensive writings, short stories and poetry. I've had shows at women's centers and several commercial establishments. I've also taught art programs in public access television for ten years. One of my paintings is featured adjacent to a Picasso in the acclaimed documentary by the BBC: THE PRIVATE LIFE OF A MASTERPIECE: THE KISS BY GUSTAV KLIMT ICON OF THE 20TH CENTURY.
Then, after many years my husband and I grew apart and I filed for divorce. The next day I began to write. The writing was spontaneous and a year later I had a fully finished science fiction novel, APPLE TOWN, CALIFORNIA. I also drew and painted over eighty illustrations of the characters and story. When the movie agent asked me how I wrote it, I told him that I saw the images and "painted them on paper" with words.
And where do I get my inspiration? From childhood, I had a vivid imagination. Incredibly, sometimes my nighttime dreams would manifest in the physical world. Today, I work as a professional intuitive and am drawn to the mysteries of the world. APPLE TOWN, CALIFORNIA comes from this inner place and includes several dream sequences that I've actually had. It is a story about facing almost insurmountable challenges and succeeding; a story of light and hope amidst utter darkness that speaks of the human's souls' capacity for incredible transformation. Grace Divine
ABOUT GRACE DIVINE:
Grace Divine is a contemporary painter, sculptor, photographer and writer. Her studio is currently located in Newport Beach, California. Having lived in California, Spain and Mexico, Grace Divine has studied art in the distinguished college of art in Laguna Beach, the University of California at Irvine, and the University of Texas Dallas, from which she graduated with a Masters Degree in Art & Humanities.
As an artist, she is the founder of both, THE PSYCHIC ART MOVEMENT & THE MULTIVERSE ART MOVEMENT.
Her style of painting and sculpture is a fusion of of many styles depending if whether she is 'channeling' art or creating art inspired by her inner visions.
In addition, Grace Divine also works as an attorney in Southern California.
THE MULTIVERSE ART MOVEMENT
Art in the multiverse art movement is art based on the concept that multiple parallel realities exists, and that 'inspired' individuals can, through a series of processes, extract, connect to, convey or channel important, symbolic, and/or relevant information from one parallel universe to the other.
Throughout history, human beings have created art. In my opinion, art is first and foremost the most sacred, important, profound and beautiful form of language that there is. It is the language that speaks from and to the deepest truth inside an individual. It is the language that reaches out from inside a person's soul to everyone and everything around her or him. Where the individual perceives existence, art fills that need to reach out to it, touch it, communicate with it, understand it, psychically posses it, ingest it and more.
And by 'ART,' the Multiverse Art Movement encompasses new concepts of 'existence' or reality as presented by developing theories of the universe as a multiverse. As such, art as understood via a multiverse concept, conceives of the creative process as a form of overlap or, at times, a form of comunication between two or more existent realities. In addition, the Multiverse Art Movement includes all forms of creative endeavor including: painting, sculpting, photography, writing, music composition, music performance, acting, dancing, movie production and others. In this way, the Multiverse Art Movement differentiates from other art movements that are limited to the visual arts.
THE PSYCHIC ART MOVEMENT
Art of the Psychic Art Movement is art based on the concept that artists have the capacity to tap into that which inspires them to create an alternative expressions of beauty and experience. Much like in the multiverse art movement, the PSYCHIC ART MOVEMENT believes that 'inspired' individuals can, through a series of processes, extract, connect to, convey or channel important, symbolic, and/or relevant information from one parallel universe to the other.
ABOUT CHANNELED ART:
"Channeled art" is art that uses energy channeled by the artist. Grace Divine is a professional intuitive mystic artist. In many of her paintings she channels the energy of the artists who inspire her. She is also a professional psychic medium. By way of her gifts she reads and senses energy. She uses her channeled energy to create art and write books.
My painting titled, ""The Kiss of Death (to be spoken outloud: Grace I want you to live)" was featured in the award winning documentary titled: The Private Life of a Masterpiece by the BBC arts documentary series which told the stories behind great works of art; 29 episodes of the series were broadcast on BBC Two, commencing in 2001 and ending in 2010. It initially ran for 5 seasons from 2001 to 2006, for a total of 22 episodes; each episode was 50 minutes long. A 7-DVD box set of the first five series was released in 2007, which re-arranged the documentaries into genres from art history. A further 7 episodes were broadcast between 2006 and 2010.
The series was produced by independent TV production company Fulmar TV, based in Cardiff. The series producer, who also devised the concept of the programme, was Jeremy Bugler.
The series was praised by the TV critic of The Times, David Chater, who listed it at Number 30 in The top 50 TV shows of the Noughties.
My painting is featured in Disc Six: Masterpieces of the Twentieth century
Gustav Klimt: The Kiss
The Kiss (original Der Kuss) by Gustav Klimt, is his most famous work. He began work on it in 1907 and it is the highpoint of his so-called 'Golden Period'. It depicts a couple, in various shades of gold and symbols, sharing a kiss against a bronze background. It has been said that this is the most iconic painting of all time and the one painting that has probably inspired more creative work than any other art in history.
Gustav Klimt's paintings fetch some of the highest prices for paintings in auctions ever in the history of the world. In 2006, the 1907 portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, was purchased for the Neue Galerie in New York by Ronald Lauder for a reported US $135 million, surpassing Picasso's 1905 Boy With a Pipe (sold May 5, 2004 for $104 million), as the highest reported price ever paid for a painting.
Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects. Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism.
Grace Divine's art work has been highly inspired by Gustav Klimt!
