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 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.

In Progress

Evolution of another painting I currently have in progress.  It started out as just a little sketch on the corner of an envelope (because you never know when inspiration will strike.)  Then the initial rough layer of paint on canvas and a close-up detail of a ram in progress.  Acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.”  I’ll post the finished painting soon- in the meantime, the rest of this series can be found here.

“Dissociate” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 12″w x 6″h; (c) Amy Guidry 2015

I’ve recently finished some new work in my In Our Veins series.  Dissociate is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ wide by 6″ high.  Lately I’ve been exploring the “opposite” of many paintings in this series. Whereas in previous paintings, I relied on eyes and facial expressions to convey a sense of connection, these recent works show animals without faces or covered faces. Anonymity vs. connection- without seeing their faces, does that make them any less personable? Meaningful? And how does this apply on a global scale? These are some of the questions I’m working on with these and future paintings.
