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.

Sold

“Systems” by Amy Guidry; acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2013

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.

Sold

"Symbiotic" by Amy Guidry; acrylic on canvas; 11"w x 14"h; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2012

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.

The Sum of Its Parts

“The Sum of Its Parts” by Amy Guidry; acrylic on canvas; 11″w x 14″h; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2012

I have finally finished the painting that I mentioned last week.  I’m excited to reveal my latest work in the In Our Veins series titled The Sum of Its Parts.  It is 11″ wide by 14″ high and an acrylic on canvas.  I think I set a record for going through the most paintbrushes in one painting.  I took artistic liberties with the size and placement of the stag’s heart to emphasize its significance and to center it up with the animals falling out.  Without being too graphic, I wanted to illustrate when one species dies, many other species are affected.  Each animal serves a role in the life cycle, together forming the delicate balance of nature.  The trees not only close in the composition, but connect with the animals via the roots seen at the bottom and illustrate the role of plant life and the Earth.  The butterflies, which are often seen throughout this series, serve as metaphors for life and beautiful little reminders of our short existence in the scheme of things.  A larger view of the painting can be seen here: www.amyguidry.com/sum-of-its-parts.html.

“In Our Veins” Video Feature

I’m excited to announce the “arrival” of my new video project featuring In Our Veins.  This latest video is an in-depth look into the series, discussing my thoughts behind several paintings, as well as some great closeup views of the work.  The video is narrated by Cheryl Mack (she also narrated the New Realm video- many people have asked if it was me).  My description does not do it justice- so be sure to check it out by clicking the image below or visiting Youtube at http://youtu.be/raQXeTBHJTQ.
