New Work

“Encroach” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2017
“Reciprocal” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″ x 4″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’ve recently finished two new paintings in my In Our Veins series.  Encroach is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.”  It serves as a subtle commentary on human intervention in nature while illustrating the connection of the natural world to all life.  Reciprocal is the latest addition to the smaller series of paintings within In Our Veins.  It is also an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.”  Reciprocal conveys the connection to nature by linking flora and fauna and uses the ribbon to continue the recent theme exploring anonymity versus connection.

Minetta Review

“The Wild West” by Amy Guidry on the cover of the Minetta Review

My painting, The Wild West, is on the cover of the latest issue of the Minetta Review.  The Fall/Winter issue just came out and a digital version is now online at: https://issuu.com/minetta/docs/f2016_minetta_mag_final_for_issuu.

In The Wild West, a skeletal horse and human hybrid, suggesting our practices of genetic manipulation, serves as a grim tale of foreboding.  The skeleton, the horse skull, and the desert are symbols of cowboys and typical Western imagery.  Television Westerns would typically portray life as good vs. bad, when in reality, the land, environment, people, and animals were all seen as a means to an end.  The title refers to how the U.S., itself a part of the western hemisphere, is still taking over land, animals, and resources to this day, creating desert landscapes via clear-cutting and global warming.

I’ve recently finished three new paintings in my In Our Veins series.  Two of which are from my smaller, 4″ by 4″ paintings.  I was particularly interested in doing a piece on forest clear-cutting because it is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of global warming.  The smaller paintings, Inseparable and Evanescence, are in reference to the connection of all life, which is the overarching theme of this series.  View the paintings online: http://amyguidry.com/clear-cut.htmlhttp://amyguidry.com/inseparable.html, and http://amyguidry.com/evanescence.html.

A couple of photos of my latest painting in progress.  This will be part of my In Our Veins series.  The first rough layer of paint has been added, and I’m currently working on building the layers of color and detail to the ocean water.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high.  More details soon!

In Progress

I have a few photos of my current painting in progress.  With the size and background on this, it is one of my more involved pieces.  As with all of my paintings, I start off with a basic sketch onto the canvas.

Then I add a rough first layer of paint just to work everything in and then add numerous subsequent layers, building color and value as I go.

The fine detail work is the final step.
