I’ve recently finished some new work in my In Our Veins series. Dissociate is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ wide by 6″ high. Lately I’ve been exploring the “opposite” of many paintings in this series. Whereas in previous paintings, I relied on eyes and facial expressions to convey a sense of connection, these recent works show animals without faces or covered faces. Anonymity vs. connection- without seeing their faces, does that make them any less personable? Meaningful? And how does this apply on a global scale? These are some of the questions I’m working on with these and future paintings.
I’ve also finished a new small painting called Vision. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. Both paintings were featured in my September newsletter which went out earlier this week. View them online here: http://amyguidry.com/dissociate.html and here: http://amyguidry.com/vision.html.
