Face to Face

These are a few photos from opening night for the “Face to Face” exhibition at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans.  Artists represented by the gallery as well as a few new artists have created their own interpretation of portraiture, ranging from the traditional to the abstract.  The show is up now through July 29th, so there’s still time to see the exhibit.

Opening / New Work

I’ve just finished both paintings previously featured while in progress.  Pervasive and Sentience will both be on exhibit for the opening at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans tomorrow (June 3, 2017).  Pervasive has been a long time in the making.  I’m sometimes asked if living in Louisiana affects my work.  Given that my work deals with the welfare of our planet, many of the issues that Louisiana faces (habitat loss, flooding, BP oil spill, hurricanes) are something that I cover but on more of a global scale.  Pervasive is one of the most direct pieces I’ve done, focusing on the conservation of Louisiana wildlife and wetlands.  The BP oil spill not only affected the wildlife of Louisiana, but it continues to affect the wildlife of rest of the world to this day as bird and sea animals continue to migrate.  It may be asking a lot of a painting, but I hope that it has a big impact.

Sentience was specifically created for the “Face to Face” exhibit opening at LeMieux Galleries.  The exhibit features a range of interpretations of portraiture.  In Sentience, the butterflies represent the beauty and fragility of life, while the third eye represents enlightenment.  The eye is a human eye, referring to the fact that we are all members of the animal kingdom, and can see a bit of ourselves in the personalities of other animals.  Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″wide by 6″high.

Both paintings will be on view tomorrow, June 3rd for the opening reception from 6-8pm.  The exhibit will remain up through July 29th, 2017.

In Progress

I’ve made some more progress on my latest painting.  I’m in the home stretch on this one.  At 10″ wide by 20″ high, this is a large size given all the detail work (and that yet to be done!).  It’s coming along slowly but surely.  This is a close-up of one of the pelicans I recently finished.  I’ll be revealing the entire finished piece soon.

In Progress

A few photos of my current painting in progress.  I have not decided on a title yet, but can say that it is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high.  These are a few shots of the beginning stages taking it from a sketch on paper to the first few layers of paint, focusing on the sky.

While finishing up another painting, I have a small piece currently in the works.  This is a progress photo after the outline sketch onto canvas and applying a rough layer of paint and more detailed layers on the left side of the skull.  The finished painting will be posted here soon.

Next Up: New Orleans

"Wolfpack" by Amy Guidry; acrylic on canvas; 12" x 12"; (c) Amy Guidry 2012

It’s been an insanely busy week, hence my lack of posting sooner.  The good news is I will be revealing a new painting I’ve been slaving over for quite some time, so be on the lookout for it.  I also have an upcoming show which is just a couple of weeks away.  I will be in a 3-person exhibit at Barrister’s Gallery in New Orleans next month with Nikki Crook and Monique Ligons.  I’ll be showing works from my In Our Veins series, my most recent body of work.  This should be a really fun show and opening night will also be held in conjunction with the SCAD Artwalk, May 12th from 6-9pm.  For those of you that would like to get a sneak preview, you can check it out here: www.barristersgallery.com/upcoming.html.

Cornucopia

After much digging through photos and picking the “best” ones to post, I am finally posting one of my latest paintings.  This is another addition to my In Our Veins series titled Cornucopia.  (Totally a coincidence on the timing, given it is the week of Thanksgiving.)  It is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 8″ high and is available through Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX.  I’ve documented my painting during my process and have a few photos to share.  I apologize for the poor quality except for the very last photo- which was professionally done.  I’m not the best with a digital camera, but feel that these photos still get the point across.  Just click the images below for a larger view.
