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.

My work is currently featured in the new issue of APONIA Magazine.  APONIA is a vegan fashion, art, and beauty magazine based out of Australia.  Several paintings from my In Our Veins series are featured as well as a lovely write-up by Thara Vidyaratne.  Thara writes, “...her ability to combine a high level of technical skill with the thorough conceptualisation of a philosopher, Guidry’s work creates surrealist images with the accuracy of photorealism.”  The issue is currently available to read online at: https://issuu.com/aponiamagazine/docs/aponia_magazine_november_2016_final.

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.

Preservation

"Preservation" by Amy Guidry on the cover of the Denver Quarterly, Vol. 50 No. 4, 2016
“Preservation” by Amy Guidry on the cover of the Denver Quarterly, Vol. 50 No. 4, 2016

My painting Preservation is featured on the current cover of the Denver Quarterly.  Aside from being on the cover, I’m also happy to have another opportunity to get the message out regarding animal and ecological welfare.  The circle of leaves was an image that came to mind before falling asleep, and I made note of it in my sketchbook.  Using the leaves to replace the head (which is in keeping with some recent paintings where I use landscapes or trees in place of heads), represents the connection of all life forms.  Nature is so much a part of us that I freely use trees or landscapes in place of heads or limbs, just to emphasize that connection and significance.

The small lot of land the deer stands on is in reference to our dire need to conserve wild land and forests.  The natural space is shrinking due to deforestation.  All the more reason to plant trees and support organizations that preserve natural habitats.

In many of my paintings, I use the eyes and facial expressions of animals to convey a sense of connection and relatability, but lately I’ve been doing the opposite and feature animals without faces or covered faces.  I’ve been exploring the idea of Anonymity vs. Connection- without seeing their faces, does that make them any less personable or meaningful?  And how does this apply on a global scale?

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.

“Integral” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 20″w x 10″h; (c) Amy Guidry 2015

I’ve (finally!) finished my latest painting in the In Our Veins series.  The painting is titled Integral and is 20″ wide by 10″ high, acrylic on canvas.  Integral explores the sometimes forgotten nature that we live in. The horses, though faceless, are still personable, a reminder of their importance. The landscape, tied to the horses, illustrates the connection between all life.  View the painting online here: http://amyguidry.com/integral.html.
