Received my copies of the May 2018 Couture issue of Vie Magazine in the mail yesterday. I was excited and honored to see my painting Interconnectfeatured in there as part of a teaser article in anticipation of an upcoming interview. The Couture issue is available on newsstands now.
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.

I’m so happy to announce my finished painting, Vestige. It features a grizzly bear atop old cars in a junkyard. Flowers grow out of his back as a reminder of the connection of all life forms and also serving as a symbol of a vestige of nature among waste.
When I was a child, I diligently worked on a book I was “writing” about animals (it mostly consisted of drawings). My thinking was that if they were good enough illustrations, people would then care about animals as much as I did. I still feel the same today- paint animals so that people will care about them, see them, really see them, for who they are, all part of this Earth.
While working on this painting, I’ve been focused on how much gets sent to landfills, creating a new “landscape” in which trees are removed and replaced with garbage. It has even inspired a recycling fiend such as myself to discover new ways to reduce and reuse.
Prints of TheWild West will soon be available! This is only the second painting to be available in print form. This will be a limited edition run of 50 Giclées, hand signed and numbered, 11″ wide by 14″ high on acid-free, 100% cotton, archival 230 gsm paper, $50 each. The prints will be available next week, so if you want to be notified before they are announced online, contact me to get on the list: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html.
I’m happy to announce that my work is featured in the current issue of Vegan Lifestyle Magazine based out of the UK. Several paintings from my In Our Veins series are featured alongside the article. Issue 42 is available for download at: http://www.veganlifestylemagazine.com/.
A few photos of my current painting in progress. I had started this painting just a few days before Grizzly bears were removed from Endangered Species status. Sad, but fitting. 700 bears in the wild is not a high number, especially if there is a major disaster, and to ensure no genetic mutations occur due to inbreeding. Our priorities need to change. So it’s fitting that I happened to choose a Grizzly as my subject for this piece. We are steadily creating desert landscapes full of our garbage- in this case, a junkyard of cars- as we clear out the natural habitat of so many species, many endangered. I used flowers growing out of the bear’s back as a reference to our connection to nature; this lone patch of flowers mirroring the small, shrinking natural landscape.
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.
