Happy to say that my painting On the Rise is in the current issue of Tulane University’s literary arts journal The Tulane Review. On the Rise is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. You can view the painting on my website at this direct link: https://amyguidry.com/on-the-rise.html.
My paintings Dissociate and On the Rise are both in new homes. One is in England and the other in Texas. Different paintings, different countries, but both focus on our treatment of nature and animals. And both serve as a reminder of our connection to the world and our responsibility to care for it. On a side note, On the Rise can be seen in the new August 2018 issue of VIE Magazine. You can view both paintings as well as the rest of the In Our Veins series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.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/.
I will have work in the upcoming “Emerging to Established” group exhibition at Krause Gallery in New York, NY in January 2017. The exhibit opens January 7th, 2017 with a reception from 6-8pm and will remain up through January 31st.
This week is the last week of my exhibit at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. My series, In Our Veins, is on view in the Main Gallery of LeMieux now through September 24th. You can also catch Lee Deigaard’s series, Near and Far.
I’ve had some great response to this body of work, including a feature in American Art Collector Magazine’s September 2016 issue. And Paul Bentley of the New Orleans magazine, Where Y’At, gave me a great review stating: “…Her dreamlike landscapes with animal, human, and natural forms mixing and dancing with each other create beautiful images that seem to be more than just a mere neo-surrealist tribute to Dali or O’Keefe. Her paintings create a dialogue with her obvious predecessors and influences, but they retain an original, calming, eerie, and downright intelligent attitude to them.”
More information on this exhibit can be found on LeMieux’s website.
I’ve finally finished my large painting as well as a couple of smaller pieces. All three are the latest in my In Our Veins series. The first is titled On the Rise and is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. This piece was created in an effort to raise awareness of the plight of animals in the Arctic. Next is Arise, also an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6″ square. The skull serves as a landscape for wild horses, linking humans and animals. Lastly is the latest addition to the smaller paintings, Stem, which is 4″ by 4.” The deer wears a wreath of roses, representing their connection to each other and all of nature. View all three paintings online here: On the Rise, Arise, and Stem.
A couple of photos of my latest painting in progress. This will be part of my In Our Veins series. The first rough layer of paint has been added, and I’m currently working on building the layers of color and detail to the ocean water. It is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. More details soon!
I am currently working on some new small paintings, one of which is this 4″ by 4,” acrylic on canvas. This is the initial rough layer of paint with some detail added to the ocean and sky. The finished painting will be posted here soon. In the meantime, check out the rest of the series here.
