A collector kindly sent me these home installation views of my paintings. I love the arrangement of these pieces with personal photos and other art. Integrate and Regrowth are paired together and Efflorescence is centered between a photograph and a wall sculpture.
Revealing my latest finished painting Coalescence. This piece features an emperor gum moth and Eurasian lynx (one of four species of lynx cats). They were nearly driven to extinction in Switzerland but were reintroduced so the population is small but stable. They are still critically endangered in other areas, though. The connection of the leaves, moth, and lynx represent the connection of all flora and fauna. Acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. You can view the painting on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/coalescence.html .
My painting Transcendental has found a new home. This piece was created as part of Modern Eden Gallery’s Familiar: The Spirit Animal in Contemporary Art exhibition. This piece utilized “butterfly eyes” as several other paintings and has a nearly monochromatic theme. It is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.

Finished this small painting for a collector recently. The title is Venerable and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. Did you know that sharks are older than trees? Sharks have been in existence for 400 million years, surviving 4 global mass extinctions. The earliest species of what we would classify as a tree existed 350 million years ago. Given the negative association with sharks, I wanted to create a painting that emphasized their importance in the balance of nature. It’s when things are out of balance that we have problems. The recent upsurge in shark attacks is actually linked to climate change. As waters are becoming warmer, they become more hospitable to larger, more diverse shark populations, and allow for sharks to move into areas that were previously “shark-free.” This is just one reason why it is imperative that we make responsible choices and shrink our carbon footprint now rather than later.
Happy to reveal my finished painting Balance. This piece was created for Cactus Gallery’s upcoming Magic Oceans, Sacred Rivers exhibition which focuses on ocean life and their welfare. Coral and polar bears come from disparate environments, but both are ecologically connected and affected by our actions. This piece is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. The exhibition opens June 8th, 5pm at Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles.
My new painting Integrate is now finished. This is the latest piece in my In Our Veins series. Integrate features an African serval with a similarly colored and patterned Resh cicada. The combination of the two with a human eye represents the connection of all of nature. Integrate is an acrylic on canvas, 6” wide by 6” high.

New year, new painting. Though technically I finished this painting shortly beforehand. This piece was done with a friend in mind that loves wolves and rescues insects, too, and is now in her collection. The title is Interdepend and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. This piece has sold, but you can find more paintings and prints available through my website: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
I’m happy to reveal my new painting Regrowth, created specifically for Modern Eden Gallery’s Night Garden exhibition. The exhibit explores nature and earth magic, flora and fauna, death and wilderness. The human eyes within the leaves refer to our connection to all of nature. Regrowth is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. The exhibit is up now through January 4, 2019. You can view the painting online here as well as my available work at Modern Eden: https://www.moderneden.com/search?type=product&q=amy+guidry .
