This is a cropped view of the painting, which total size is 6″ wide by 6″ high. Acrylic on canvas.

Finished this small painting for a collector recently. The title is Venerable and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. Did you know that sharks are older than trees? Sharks have been in existence for 400 million years, surviving 4 global mass extinctions. The earliest species of what we would classify as a tree existed 350 million years ago. Given the negative association with sharks, I wanted to create a painting that emphasized their importance in the balance of nature. It’s when things are out of balance that we have problems. The recent upsurge in shark attacks is actually linked to climate change. As waters are becoming warmer, they become more hospitable to larger, more diverse shark populations, and allow for sharks to move into areas that were previously “shark-free.” This is just one reason why it is imperative that we make responsible choices and shrink our carbon footprint now rather than later.

I’m happy to reveal my painting Woven which was created for WOW x WOW’s MicroVisions 2 exhibition. Every plant, animal, and insect serves a role in the life cycle, together forming the delicate balance of nature. The human third eye in this piece refers to our connection to all of nature. The leaves extending from the eye, weaving around the privet hawk moth’s antennae, connect us to all flora and fauna. Woven is an acrylic on canvas, 5” wide by 5” high, available online here: https://amyguidry.com/woven.html. The exhibition is open now through May 24th, 2019.
