Revealing my two paintings for the upcoming Coaster Show 2017 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, California. The coyote piece is titled Vitae, which is Latin for life. It is an acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo. The skull painting is titled Elucido, which is Latin for enlighten. It is also an acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo. Both will be on display as part of the exhibition opening September 1st (gallery reception that evening from 8-11pm). The exhibit runs September 1st through October 1st, 2017. Check out the online preview here: http://laluzdejesus.com/the-5th-annual-coaster-show-harold-fox/#more-21998.
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 was invited to create a piece for the upcoming Coaster Show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, California. The title is Origin, and it is an acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo. The show opens September 2nd, from 8-11pm and will remain up through October 2nd. View the painting online here: http://laluzdejesus.com/the-4th-annual-coaster-show-mark-todd/origin/.
I’ve just added two new paintings to the In Our Veins series, both of which quickly sold after being featured. Kin is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4″ and Absent is also an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 4″ high. Both were highlighted in my latest newsletter, which features my latest work and gives subscribers the first peek, in addition to listings of current and upcoming shows, and other news. If you would like to keep up with me you can join here: www.amyguidry.com/contact.html. And you can view my new paintings online here: www.amyguidry.com/kin.html and here: www.amyguidry.com/absent.html.
My painting Systems from the In Our Veins series has recently found a new home. It is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x 6.” I had posted a progress shot of this piece awhile back showing where I had left off with it. I put this one on hiatus for over 2 years before revisiting it and finally completing it. Sometimes it just takes a step back to suddenly see everything clearly. View the finished painting online here: www.amyguidry.com/systems.html.
Another painting from my In Our Veins series will have a new home. Symbiotic is an acrylic on canvas, 11″w x 14″h. There is a good bit of history to this piece- for starters, it comes from one of the original sketches I did in the early stages of the series. Because I do these sketches while I am currently working on other paintings, it can be quite some time before they come to fruition. Needless to say, I have lived with the concept for Symbiotic for awhile. Also, it was this year’s Best of Show winner in the Surreal Salon held at the Baton Rouge Gallery Center for Contemporary Art. As a result of my win, it was featured in ads in both Juxtapoz and Hi-Fructose magazine. I’m happy that it will be in good hands and joining a fantastic collection of work.
