Revealing my new painting Intricate, created for Gristle Art Gallery’s “After Dark” exhibition. This group exhibition features nocturnal animal themed works. Intricate is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. It is currently on view at Gristle Art Gallery in Brooklyn, New York now through March 9th.

I’m happy to reveal my finished painting Delicate. It is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. This piece was created for Gristle Art Gallery’s insect-themed “Killing Jar” exhibition which is going on now through November 24th. Delicate features a stag beetle whose body is patterned in lace. Insects are often feared, but the lace body serves as a reminder to their diminutive size and delicate beauty. You can view the painting on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/delicate.html.
Sharing a couple of progress photos of a new painting for Gristle Art Gallery’s upcoming “Killing Jar” exhibition. This insect-themed group exhibit opens October 20th at Gristle Art Gallery in New York. I can’t reveal the finished painting yet, but these are some sneak previews of my piece while it was in progress. The title is Delicate, which refers to the delicate beauty of the stag beetle. It is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. The finished piece will be revealed soon. In the meantime, you can view more work from this series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
My latest painting in the In Our Veins series is now online. This piece was created for Gristle Art Gallery’s “Floriography” exhibition going on now through May 5th, 2018. It’s titled Interconnect and is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. The human third eye refers to our connection to all of nature, both flora and fauna.
I chose to paint a jaguar for this piece- one of my favorite big cats ever since childhood. And an appropriate subject for a floriography-themed exhibit as their black spots are referred to as “rosettes” because of their rose-like shape. Jaguars are mainly found in the Amazon or remote areas of Central and South America. They haven’t reached full endangered status -yet- but their population is in decline and they are listed as Threatened.
This is a sneak preview of sorts of my new painting Interconnect which will be part of Gristle Art Gallery’s “Floriography” exhibition. It was selected as a promotional image for the show, so I’ll be posting the full image (sans text) once the exhibit opens. If you are or will be in Brooklyn, New York anytime soon, the exhibition will be up March 10th through May 5th. There will be an opening reception this Saturday, March 10th from 7-9pm.
