My painting The Pack will be on view starting tomorrow in Austin, Texas. It was selected to be a part of “Good Mourning Tis of Thee,” a conceptual group exhibition curated by Alyssa Taylor Wendt and Sean Gaulager. Funded by a generous grant from the city of Austin and the Cultural Arts Division, this exhibit will cover such themes as death and transformation, in which death is a catalyst for positive change. The show runs October 13th through November 2nd, 2017 at Co-Lab Projects’ DEMO Gallery in Austin, TX. There will be an opening reception tomorrow, October 13th from 7-11pm.
After working on a few other projects for upcoming shows, I finally have a chance to get back to my grizzly bear painting. And I’m at the point where I can work on the face, which is when it really comes to life. The subject becomes more real to me once I paint the eyes. Even if I don’t know the subject, it’s when I paint the eyes that they come to life. They take on a personality. It’s exciting for me as an artist to witness that transformation.
This painting is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ by 12.” I’ll be posting the finished piece soon. In the meantime, you can check out the rest of the In Our Veins series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
