This is a little sneak preview (closeup) of my painting recently created for an upcoming exhibit. I’m happy to share that my painting will be featured as part of “Familiar: The Spirit Animal in Contemporary Art” at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, California. The exhibit opens Friday, November 3rd with a gallery reception from 6-9pm. The exhibit will remain up through December 1st, 2017. I’ll be sharing the finished painting in its entirety soon.
Just finished this small painting from my In Our Veins series. Cohaereo, which is Latin for connected, is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” The rabbit wears a collar of roses atop an exposed heart. The heart on the outside of the body serves as a reminder of our shared biology with all of life. The butterflies are a metaphor for life in that both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. You can view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/Cohaereo.html.
Working on a few paintings at the moment- this small painting is currently in progress. I’ll be revealing the finished piece in my upcoming newsletter next week. (Sign up here for the first look at the finished painting.) This tiny bunny wears a collar of roses atop a giant heart. The butterflies represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high.
A little preview of something I’m working on for an upcoming exhibit. The theme deals with animal spirits, which I was all set to paint a bear for this one and then had a strong inclination to paint a lion at the last minute (because I’m a Leo??). I also felt like I should go for a more monochromatic look- close to, at least. This is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” I’ll be posting more info about the exhibit closer to time. Until then, check out more of this series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
In anticipation of the exhibition I have coming up, I’m sharing my finished painting, Transformation. This piece was created for Wow X Wow’s second online exhibition, “Room of a Thousand Doors.” It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” The exhibition opens this Friday, September 1st, 7PM BST through September 22, 2017. In the meantime, view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/transformation.html. Email sales(at)wowxwow(dot)com with any inquiries.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to participate in the upcoming “Room of a Thousand Doors” exhibit being held by Wow X Wow. I’ve been working on a new painting for this show, taking it in a slightly different direction (inspired by the theme of many paths to take). The intense, dark leafy background is a new approach for me. This is a progress shot of my painting- I’ll be revealing more over the next couple of weeks. It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x .6″ The exhibit will be held online via Wow X Wow, opening September 1st 7pm BST.
Sometimes I receive installation images from people after they’ve hung my work in their home. It’s always nice to see my work again and how it looks in its new space, plus if it’s been included in groupings of work by other artists, that’s always nice to see. So these are a few shots featuring paintings from my In Our Veins series and Beneath the Surface series.
I’ve added two new small paintings to the In Our Veins series. One was previously posted in progress. Both were featured in my recent newsletter and have each found new homes in Louisiana and Florida. Spiritus, which is Latin for breath, continues with the theme of organs on the outside of the body as a reminder of our shared biology. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4” wide by 4” high. Perception, also an acrylic on canvas, refers to our understanding of nature and recognition of all sentient beings. View each of them here: https://amyguidry.com/spiritus.html and here: https://amyguidry.com/perception.html.
I’ve recently finished two new paintings in my In Our Veins series. Encroach is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” It serves as a subtle commentary on human intervention in nature while illustrating the connection of the natural world to all life. Reciprocal is the latest addition to the smaller series of paintings within In Our Veins. It is also an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” Reciprocal conveys the connection to nature by linking flora and fauna and uses the ribbon to continue the recent theme exploring anonymity versus connection.
