Art Description

Painting: Enamel, Acrylic, Oil on Wood.


Thank you for visiting. And thank you for your patronage.

This is a beautiful original unique one of a kind painting.
I am the artist, and I create all my art.

This art is explosive with colors, but these colors although bright and vibrant, skew to symbolize the intense experience of the grotesque.

And actually, this painting, and the paintings in the series were inspired by the horror I felt when I learned about CHIMERAS and CHIMERISM.

What is that? Chimeras are living beings that have bodies DNA from creatures unrelated, like for instance, recently the chimpanzees who have been implanted with human brain cells.

It is unspeakable and grotesque. And I think this kind of experimentation is unspeakable in its horror, worse than anything that ever came before.

Everything I do, I like to diary. I diary via my art, books, performances. In this art, I express my imagined suffering of these creatures who have no voice. This is why I think of these paintings as grotesque.

There is a book that features this art:

I paint in series. This here is for one precious beautiful painting. Check them out at:

1. For all art acquisitions, I can provide a letter of provenance guaranteeing that the art was acquired from my artist studio.
2. Because monitors differ colors may be affected. And because the art is handmade/cut, sizes here are approximations (mm's plus or minus). Please note, the art has stretchers which I made in my studio. Therefore, the art is READY TO HANG. These stretchers may be 1 to 2 inches. So please allow for that in size description. Also, the art may be framed once you acquire possession of the piece but it can be hung without framing.
3. Also, the art can be hung horizontally or vertically. It looks beautiful either way. It can be hung as per the patron's taste and desires.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you

Grace Divine
