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.

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 / Exhibition Opening

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.

Currently working on a new painting for WOW x WOW’s upcoming online exhibition, “Super Reverie.”  I decided to paint an ocelot for this one.  When I was a child, I was such a fan of ocelots and big cats that I could identify them solely by the markings on their fur.  While the overall ocelot population is currently considered stable, there are only 30 left in the United States in southeast Texas.  They used to be found east in Arkansas and Louisiana, as well as throughout Texas and in Mexico.  Now they are found only in extreme southern Texas, northeastern Mexico, in addition to Central and South America.  Hunting and habitat loss are their biggest threats, which is why a border wall could hinder their roaming for food and breeding.

These are progress photos of the beginning layers of paint as well as much more development of detail to the hair and eyes.  The painting is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.  Sign up for my newsletter if you’d like to know when the finished piece goes online: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html.
