I hadn’t mentioned this sale before on my blog, but I thought it would be a great time to do so since one of my inspirations is having an opening next month. One of my earlier series consisted of portraits and figure work, this being one of those paintings. I was (and still am) a big fan of Philip Pearlstein’s work, and thought of his nudes when painting this piece (except sans the various objects in the background, since my focus was on closeup views of the faces and figures). As it turns out, Mr. Pearlstein is having an opening November 4th at Betty Cunningham Gallery in New York. Judging by the title of the show, it will consist of all new paintings, too.
So my homage to Philip Pearlstein has sold. But if you are in the area, you can see why I am such a fan of his work by checking out his show at Betty Cunningham, which will be up through Dec. 11th. And if you’d like to see more of my work, be sure to visit www.AmyGuidry.com.
Just found a new home for another painting! This piece is “And Justice for All. Void Where Prohibited.” I recently exhibited it in the Forum for Equality “Fight for Your Rights” exhibit at The Alamo in Lafayette, LA. It’s a large painting- 40 inches tall by 30 inches wide and an acrylic on canvas. I’ve included a couple of detail shots since a lot is lost in a small jpeg of such a big piece. Just click on the images for the full view. There are other paintings from this series that are available, so be sure to check them out on my website. Several series are featured in my gallery, but the direct link to this particular group is www.amyguidry.com/anti-aging.html.
I received some good news from Wally Workman Gallery in Austin today. They sold one of my New Realm 5 x 5 paintings while at the gallery. I recently obtained representation with them, so I am glad that they’ve sold a painting for me, especially given the timing (i.e. economy). So now my piece “Reflecting” will be in its new home soon.
If you are in Texas, you should stop by Wally Workman Gallery to view my work in person. I do not have an exhibit with them at this time, but they do have several of my paintings in the gallery. But if you are unable or if you’d like to see more of my work, you can go to my website at www.AmyGuidry.com.
