With these big paintings I paint – with all of their delicate line work, their careful plotting, and intuitive yet thought-out color choices – I try to strike the fine balance between careful planning and spontaneity. Yet, when I look at the works of Monet or Boccioni, I see in the seeming spontaneous brushstrokes – the dabs and daubs of paint – an emotional/creative process that I also love and strive for. These other paintings work with that as much as anything else.
I look forward to sharing some of these pieces – works that I’ve never shown in public places before – and allowing for others to get a deeper glimpse into my creative process. It’s not all careful lines. Sometimes it’s jut dabbing and daubing and random patterns. Out of that murky and frantic fire of creativity, one never knows what might arise.

TEMPLE OF VISIONS GALLERY
719 S. Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90014
Please join us on November 5, 2011 for this exciting opening exhibition, featuring the art of visionary Michael Divine. The entire gallery space will be devoted to a vast array of works, from masterpieces to many lesser-known and previously un-exhibited pieces.
The main gallery will feature work such as The Glass Onion, Illumination, and Limits, framed by master of the craft Matt Elson. The back gallery spaces will be loaded with never before seen pieces, including studies, sketches, and experimental artworks. The pieces in this show have been produced over the course of the past 15 years.
This wide spectrum of work illuminates the artistic process and grants viewers a look inside the mind of this prolific artist. Works illustrating the varying processes involved in making an art piece, from the deep inner urge to create to the careful plotting ideas and concepts, are presented. We are thrilled to share this opportunity for a deep personal look into this exemplary artist.
