New Painting / Exhibition Opening

“Bestow” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2018
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.

Visions of the Unnatural World

I’m a little slow to post these given my show at Barrister’s Gallery ended June 23rd.  Nevertheless, I wanted to share photos from the opening reception for my 3-person exhibition, “Visions of the Unnatural World.”  It was a really great exhibit and a great pair of artists – Nikki Crook and Monique Ligons – to show with.  More photos are also online here: http://www.amyguidry.com/events.html.
