Duality

Introducing my newest painting Duality, created for Modern Eden Gallery’s Precious Metal exhibition. Duality is a dynamic juxtaposition of the rainbow, a symbol of harmony, and the medieval lion, a symbol sometimes associated with danger or war. In Irish folklore, leprechauns hid gold at the end of the rainbow, but such treasures come at a cost. Which is why I leave it to the viewer to decide, just as it is up to each of us to choose our own path. Precious Metal is open now through April 4th at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. Duality is an acrylic on canvas, 20″ wide by 10″ high, and available online here: https://www.moderneden.com/collections/precious-metal/products/duality.

Night Watch

The latest painting in my In Our Veins series is now finished. Night Watch features a bobcat, which are adaptable and thrive in various habitats from forests to deserts. They are found throughout the Sonoran desert. The Zuni and Pawnee tribes see the bobcat as a sign of blessing. Among the Pawnee, the bobcat acts as a celestial bridge, symbolizing a connection between earth and stars. The Joshua tree, which grows despite harsh desert conditions, is seen as a symbol of hope and resilience. The beast heads are from a 17th century German book known as Aquarelle von Säugetieren, Vögeln, Insekten und Pflanzen samt deutschen Legenden (translated: Watercolors of Mammals, Birds, Insects, and Plants Together with German Legends). Night Watch is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ wide x 12″ high, and available on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery/night-watch/index.html.

New Paintings

“Uprooted” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 10″ x 8″; (c) Amy Guidry 2023

Happy to share two new paintings in the In Our Veins series. First is Uprooted which features an Afghan hound, one of the oldest domestic dog breeds in the world, dating back to 4000 BC, and also the first dog to be cloned. A fun little fact about this piece: the background landscape is inspired by 18th century painter George Stubbs’s The Kongouro from New Holland. Uprooted is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 8″ high, and you can find it on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery/uprooted/index.html.

Next up is The Committee of Indecision which was created for Modern Eden Gallery’s Harvest exhibition. Harvest explores the symbolism of fruit and vegetables in art. The grapefruit is associated with many meanings, avoidance being one of them. This piece is an acrylic on canvas, 8″ wide by 6″ high, and available through Modern Eden Gallery’s website here: https://www.moderneden.com/collections/all/products/the-committee-of-indecision.

Takeover

“Takeover” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 10″ x 8″; (c) Amy Guidry 2023

Happy to share my latest painting Takeover which features an alligator, one of Louisiana’s most popular animals and considered one of the most dangerous. The alligator’s teeth, replaced with human hands, reference the real danger, greed. With human-driven mass extinction underway, natural habitats such as wetlands are at risk, while hands reach out for more. Takeover is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 8″ high, and you can view it online here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery/takeover/index.html.

Omen

“Omen” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 12″ x 6″; (c) Amy Guidry 2023

Revealing my latest painting Omen. The sketch for this started in 2017 and I opted to do an entirely different painting. I revisited it and made a few changes. Fun fact: polar bears can’t climb trees. They lost that trait since they evolved in the Arctic where there are no trees. Omen is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ wide by 6″ high, and you can view it online here: https://amyguidry.com/omen.html.

Most nocturnally active moths are attracted to light, a phenomenon known as positive phototaxis, but in Lumen, the light comes from the moth, as they represent life in my paintings.

Amalgam

“Amalgam” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 5″ x 5″; $400; (c) Amy Guidry 2022

Excited to share my new painting Amalgam. It features a Paralomis histrix, a species of king crab sometimes referred to as the porcupine crab. The soft curved lines of the background playfully contrast with the crab’s spikes, in keeping with the pastel-colored theme. The softly transparent rose also adds to this juxtaposition while connecting flora and fauna. Amalgam is an acrylic on canvas, 5” wide by 5” high, and available through LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans or via their website: https://www.lemieuxgalleries.com/art/amalgam-by-amy-guidry.
