Happy to say that my painting On the Rise is in the current issue of Tulane University’s literary arts journal The Tulane Review. On the Rise is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. You can view the painting on my website at this direct link: https://amyguidry.com/on-the-rise.html.
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.

My painting Symbiotic has received some more attention as of late. It was recently selected for publication in Line Zero’s Winter 2012 issue- Volume 2, Issue 2. Line Zero is a quarterly indie arts and literature publication based out of Seattle featuring editorial essays on art, writing, music, photography, book reviews, and art events. The Winter 2012 issue is now available via their website at this direct link: http://linezero.org/volume-2-issue-2/.
I had a delightful surprise arrive in the mail the other day. My copies of the CALYX Journal featuring my work on the cover arrived! I’m honored to be the cover artist for their 35th Anniversary- Special Expanded edition, and not only that, but my work is on the inside as well. My painting “Adaptation” is on the cover and “Freedom” is on page 65. Both paintings are from my “New Realm” series which is a modern and surreal spin on fairytales in which the woman is the heroine, not the victim.
The CALYX Journal is comprised of art and literature by women, including poetry, photography, paintings, short stories, essays, and reviews. They were also the first in the U.S. to publish Frida Kahlo’s (one of my Surrealist heroes) works in color.
