New Painting

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

Just finished this small painting from my In Our Veins series.  Cohaereo, which is Latin for connected, is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.”  The rabbit wears a collar of roses atop an exposed heart.  The heart on the outside of the body serves as a reminder of our shared biology with all of life.  The butterflies are a metaphor for life in that both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral.  You can view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/Cohaereo.html.

Room of a Thousand Doors

Painting in progress by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to participate in the upcoming “Room of a Thousand Doors” exhibit being held by Wow X Wow.  I’ve been working on a new painting for this show, taking it in a slightly different direction (inspired by the theme of many paths to take).  The intense, dark leafy background is a new approach for me.  This is a progress shot of my painting- I’ll be revealing more over the next couple of weeks.  It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x .6″  The exhibit will be held online via Wow X Wow, opening September 1st 7pm BST.

In Progress

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.

Art at Home

Sometimes I receive installation images from people after they’ve hung my work in their home.  It’s always nice to see my work again and how it looks in its new space, plus if it’s been included in groupings of work by other artists, that’s always nice to see.  So these are a few shots featuring paintings from my In Our Veins series and Beneath the Surface series.

New Work

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

I’ve just finished a small painting that I recently posted while in progress.  It is the latest addition to my In Our Veins series.  The title is Realize and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high.  I was inspired to create this one after finishing Sentience.  In Realize, the eye that is featured is a human eye which refers to our connection to all other animals.  View it online here: https://amyguidry.com/realize.html.
