In Progress

Painting in progress (detail) by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

I’m taking a break from my rainforest painting and currently working on another new painting for the upcoming “The Revival” exhibition at Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles.  This show explores life, death, rebirth and growth represented with natural imagery.  This is a close-up of the cheetah’s face and hair which I am currently “building” (seems like the best way to phrase it given the multiple layers of paint leading up to more and more refined line work).  This piece is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.  The exhibit will open September 8th at Cactus Gallery.

Ho’olaule’a

“Hope” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″w x 6″h; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

I was recently invited to create a piece for the upcoming “Ho’olaule’a” exhibition opening at Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles.  The exhibit celebrates endangered species (Ho’olaule’a is Hawaiian for celebration), and I chose to paint the Ethiopian wolf.  Ethiopian wolves are the only wolf found in Africa.  They are the rarest species of dog in the world and the rarest carnivore in Africa.  There are less than 450 left in the wild.  They live in close-knit packs of 3-13 adults, but unusually for wolves, they hunt alone.  One of their biggest threats comes from habitat loss due to agriculture.

The title of my painting is Hope and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 6″ high.  The human third eye refers to our connection with nature: the we see ourselves in animals as well as seeing the world through their eyes.  The rainbow is a symbol of hope, hence the title, and serves to inspire us all to keep working towards a better future for all of nature.

The “Ho’olaule’a” exhibition opens this Saturday, May 12th, 6-9pm and will remain up through June 2nd.  More details here: https://cactusgalleryla.com/.  For pre-sales, contact Sandra at sandra@cactusgalleryla.com.

New Painting / Exhibition Opening

“Bestow” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; $500; (c) Amy Guidry 2018
Salvador Dali with ocelot

Very excited to reveal my new painting, Bestow, created for WOW x WOW’s upcoming online exhibition, “Super Reverie.”  Bestow is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.  I’ve been fascinated by ocelots since a very young age.  (And apparently Surrealist painter Salvador Dali is a fan.)  As mentioned before, I knew all the big cats so well I could identify them solely by their patterning (without seeing their faces).  I paired the ocelot and bees in this piece because of their similar colors and patterns.  Because of bees, plants are pollinated and ultimately provide food systems for all animals.  The bees surround the ocelot and adorn his head as if they are bestowing him with life.  The human eye refers to our connection with all of nature.  You can view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/bestow.html.

The exhibit opens May 4th, 7pm BST, and will remain up through May 25th.  More details and view the exhibition: https://wowxwow.com/product-category/super-reverie.

New Work / Exhibition

“Interconnect” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; $500; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

My latest painting in the In Our Veins series is now online.  This piece was created for Gristle Art Gallery’s “Floriography” exhibition going on now through May 5th, 2018.  It’s titled Interconnect and is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.  The human third eye refers to our connection to all of nature, both flora and fauna.

I chose to paint a jaguar for this piece- one of my favorite big cats ever since childhood.  And an appropriate subject for a floriography-themed exhibit as their black spots are referred to as “rosettes” because of their rose-like shape.  Jaguars are mainly found in the Amazon or remote areas of Central and South America.  They haven’t reached full endangered status -yet- but their population is in decline and they are listed as Threatened.

“Floriography” is on view at Gristle Art Gallery in Brooklyn, New York now through May 5th.  You can also view the exhibit online here: https://www.gristleartgallery.com/floriography.html.
