New Work

“Indispensable” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 20″w x 10″h; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’m happy to say that I’ve just finished Indispensable (the large painting of the horse).  This piece has been in the works for a few months, granted I had a couple of projects pop up as I was invited to do them, but this is one of my larger paintings.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 20″ wide by 10″ high.  Indispensable connects a mountain landscape with a horse, representing the connection of all life while keeping with a recent theme exploring the question of anonymity versus connection.  View it online here: https://amyguidry.com/indispensable.html.

I also finished a couple of small paintings I’d been wanting to do.  Cor and Corporis (Latin for heart and body, respectively) are acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4.”  Both feature rabbits  and are complimentary paintings that work as a pair or as individual pieces, both using ribbon to connect to either the ribcage or the heart.  Seeing these organs and bones serves as a reminder of the biological similarities of all sentient beings.  View them online here: https://amyguidry.com/corporis.html   and here: https://amyguidry.com/cor.html.

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 been diligently working on a new painting in my In Our Veins series.  I have not decided on a name yet, but it is a representation of the connection of all life to the natural world.  The first layer of paint has been roughed in and I’m currently working on the horse, adding color, depth, and detail to the muscles and veins.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 20″ wide by 10″ high.  View more from this series here.

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.
