New Painting / Exhibition

“Renew” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

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 sandra@cactusgalleryla.com or 323-801-8669.

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.

New Painting

“Essence” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″ x 4″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

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.

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.
