New year, new painting. Though technically I finished this painting shortly beforehand. This piece was done with a friend in mind that loves wolves and rescues insects, too, and is now in her collection. The title is Interdepend and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. This piece has sold, but you can find more paintings and prints available through my website: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
I’m happy to reveal my new painting Regrowth, created specifically for Modern Eden Gallery’s Night Garden exhibition. The exhibit explores nature and earth magic, flora and fauna, death and wilderness. The human eyes within the leaves refer to our connection to all of nature. Regrowth is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. The exhibit is up now through January 4, 2019. You can view the painting online here as well as my available work at Modern Eden: https://www.moderneden.com/collections/vendors?q=Amy%20Guidry.
I’ve just finished a new painting in my In Our Veins series. The title is Intertwine and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. I really wanted to paint a pair of bighorn sheep for this one so I had to alter the horns a bit, plus added curly hair. You can view this piece as well as other paintings in the series on my website: https://amyguidry.com/intertwine.html.
I’m happy to reveal my finished painting Delicate. It is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. This piece was created for Gristle Art Gallery’s insect-themed “Killing Jar” exhibition which is going on now through November 24th. Delicate features a stag beetle whose body is patterned in lace. Insects are often feared, but the lace body serves as a reminder to their diminutive size and delicate beauty. You can view the painting on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/delicate.html.
I’ve been painting a few big cats lately (I’ve been a fan since I was a little kid) and am happy to see some find new homes. Bestow and Interconnect have both gone to the West Coast- Seattle and Los Angeles. Both paintings are acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.
I’m happy to reveal my new painting for Cactus Gallery’s The Revival exhibition. It’s titled Renew and is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. The theme of the show deals with life, death, rebirth, and regrowth through natural imagery which is very much in line with my work. Renew is in keeping with my ongoing series, In Our Veins, which explores the connections of all life forms and the cycle of life. Each animal, and each plant, 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, while the vines refer to the cyclical process of sustenance, the transfer of energy, and renewal. You can view Renew on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/renew.html. For sales, contact the gallery director Sandra Mastroianni at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323-801-8669.
My paintings Dissociate and On the Rise are both in new homes. One is in England and the other in Texas. Different paintings, different countries, but both focus on our treatment of nature and animals. And both serve as a reminder of our connection to the world and our responsibility to care for it. On a side note, On the Rise can be seen in the new August 2018 issue of VIE Magazine. You can view both paintings as well as the rest of the In Our Veins series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
I’ve just finished a new small painting in my In Our Veins series. The title is Essence and it features a Southern white rhino. They are one of two subspecies of white rhinoceros and one of the largest and heaviest land animals in the world. Southern white rhinos are listed as Near Threatened due to habitat loss and poaching. The butterflies in this piece represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. Essence is an acrylic on canvas, 4” wide by 4” high: https://amyguidry.com/essence.html.
