My painting Sentience was recently featured in Art Galleries & Artists of the South Magazine as part of a spread on LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans.  Sentience has also found a new home.  This was the first of my “butterfly eyes” paintings.  The butterflies  represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral.  Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″high.  You can view it online here: https://amyguidry.com/sentience.html and view more “butterfly eyes” paintings from the series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.

Opening / New Work

“Pervasive” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 10″w x 20″h; (c) Amy Guidry 2017
“Sentience” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’ve just finished both paintings previously featured while in progress.  Pervasive and Sentience will both be on exhibit for the opening at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans tomorrow (June 3, 2017).  Pervasive has been a long time in the making.  I’m sometimes asked if living in Louisiana affects my work.  Given that my work deals with the welfare of our planet, many of the issues that Louisiana faces (habitat loss, flooding, BP oil spill, hurricanes) are something that I cover but on more of a global scale.  Pervasive is one of the most direct pieces I’ve done, focusing on the conservation of Louisiana wildlife and wetlands.  The BP oil spill not only affected the wildlife of Louisiana, but it continues to affect the wildlife of rest of the world to this day as bird and sea animals continue to migrate.  It may be asking a lot of a painting, but I hope that it has a big impact.

Sentience was specifically created for the “Face to Face” exhibit opening at LeMieux Galleries.  The exhibit features a range of interpretations of portraiture.  In Sentience, the butterflies represent the beauty and fragility of life, while the third eye represents enlightenment.  The eye is a human eye, referring to the fact that we are all members of the animal kingdom, and can see a bit of ourselves in the personalities of other animals.  Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″wide by 6″high.

Both paintings will be on view tomorrow, June 3rd for the opening reception from 6-8pm.  The exhibit will remain up through July 29th, 2017.

The Journal

Cover of The Journal featuring “Vital” by Amy Guidry; acrylic on canvas; 12″w x 6″h

My work was recently published on the cover and inside The Journal literary magazine.  My painting Vital is wrapped around the front and back cover while several other paintings from my In Our Veins series are inside.  In addition, there is an interview in which I’d like to share just one of the questions because I think it’s an important one:

SS: Is there anything you can tell me about this work that someone who doesn’t have expertise might not see or appreciate?

AG: I think people need to realize this: they are much more astute when it comes to art than they give themselves credit for.  True art will elicit an emotional response from someone, whether it’s a positive or negative reaction.  For those that enjoy my work, they often tell me that something resonates with them.  It may not be exactly what I expect the viewer to respond to, but it’s in the ballpark.  There have been times when someone finds my work “dark” and therefore they are unsure of it.  I would still consider that an accurate response because I deal with some tough issues in my work.  Animals are beautiful, nature is beautiful, and I’m trying to create something that is beautiful but at the same time sends a message.  Either way, I want to draw attention to these issues and inspire others to take action, even if it’s just small changes because every little bit helps.  That’s the takeaway I hope for when anyone looks at my work, whether they have an art degree or not.
