I will have work in the upcoming “Emerging to Established” group exhibition at Krause Gallery in New York, NY in January 2017. The exhibit opens January 7th, 2017 with a reception from 6-8pm and will remain up through January 31st.
This week is the last week of my exhibit at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. My series, In Our Veins, is on view in the Main Gallery of LeMieux now through September 24th. You can also catch Lee Deigaard’s series, Near and Far.
I’ve had some great response to this body of work, including a feature in American Art Collector Magazine’s September 2016 issue. And Paul Bentley of the New Orleans magazine, Where Y’At, gave me a great review stating: “…Her dreamlike landscapes with animal, human, and natural forms mixing and dancing with each other create beautiful images that seem to be more than just a mere neo-surrealist tribute to Dali or O’Keefe. Her paintings create a dialogue with her obvious predecessors and influences, but they retain an original, calming, eerie, and downright intelligent attitude to them.”
More information on this exhibit can be found on LeMieux’s website.
I’ve finally finished my large painting as well as a couple of smaller pieces. All three are the latest in my In Our Veins series. The first is titled On the Rise and is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. This piece was created in an effort to raise awareness of the plight of animals in the Arctic. Next is Arise, also an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6″ square. The skull serves as a landscape for wild horses, linking humans and animals. Lastly is the latest addition to the smaller paintings, Stem, which is 4″ by 4.” The deer wears a wreath of roses, representing their connection to each other and all of nature. View all three paintings online here: On the Rise, Arise, and Stem.
A couple of photos of my latest painting in progress. This will be part of my In Our Veins series. The first rough layer of paint has been added, and I’m currently working on building the layers of color and detail to the ocean water. It is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. More details soon!
I am currently working on some new small paintings, one of which is this 4″ by 4,” acrylic on canvas. This is the initial rough layer of paint with some detail added to the ocean and sky. The finished painting will be posted here soon. In the meantime, check out the rest of the series here.
My most recent painting from my In Our Veins series has found a new home. Expatriate was just featured in my newsletter last week which you can get a copy of here. It is an acrylic on canvas, 20″ wide by 10″ high. View the painting online here: http://amyguidry.com/expatriate.html.
I’ve recently added two new paintings online. As you may recall, I’ve posted progress photos of the first painting, Expatriate. It is now finally finished- acrylic on canvas, 20″ wide by 10″ high. The second painting is titled Veil, also an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” View the paintings online here http://amyguidry.com/expatriate.html and here http://amyguidry.com/veil.html.
I have a few photos of my current painting in progress. With the size and background on this, it is one of my more involved pieces. As with all of my paintings, I start off with a basic sketch onto the canvas.
Then I add a rough first layer of paint just to work everything in and then add numerous subsequent layers, building color and value as I go.
