Woven and Intricate have sold, Clear-Cut is available online here: https://artcld.com/art/2185171.
Finished this small painting for a collector recently. The title is Venerable and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. Did you know that sharks are older than trees? Sharks have been in existence for 400 million years, surviving 4 global mass extinctions. The earliest species of what we would classify as a tree existed 350 million years ago. Given the negative association with sharks, I wanted to create a painting that emphasized their importance in the balance of nature. It’s when things are out of balance that we have problems. The recent upsurge in shark attacks is actually linked to climate change. As waters are becoming warmer, they become more hospitable to larger, more diverse shark populations, and allow for sharks to move into areas that were previously “shark-free.” This is just one reason why it is imperative that we make responsible choices and shrink our carbon footprint now rather than later.
Happy to reveal my finished painting Balance. This piece was created for Cactus Gallery’s upcoming Magic Oceans, Sacred Rivers exhibition which focuses on ocean life and their welfare. Coral and polar bears come from disparate environments, but both are ecologically connected and affected by our actions. This piece is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. The exhibition opens June 8th, 5pm at Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles.
Making some progress on my current painting. Working on the polar bear’s hair at the moment. This piece will be part of Cactus Gallery’s Magic Oceans, Sacred Rivers exhibition which focuses on our connection to oceans, rivers, and their animals as well as their welfare. This painting is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. If you’d like to be updated when it goes online, sign up for my monthly newsletter: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html.
Sneak peek at the early stages of a new painting for Cactus Gallery’s upcoming Magic Oceans, Sacred Rivers exhibition. This is the initial underpainting before moving on to detail work. Total size is 5″ wide by 5″ high, acrylic on canvas. The exhibition will open June 8th.
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 paintings Dissociate and On the Rise are both in new homes. One is in England and the other in Texas. Different paintings, different countries, but both focus on our treatment of nature and animals. And both serve as a reminder of our connection to the world and our responsibility to care for it. On a side note, On the Rise can be seen in the new August 2018 issue of VIE Magazine. You can view both paintings as well as the rest of the In Our Veins series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
I’m happy to announce that my work is featured in the current issue of Vegan Lifestyle Magazine based out of the UK. Several paintings from my In Our Veins series are featured alongside the article. Issue 42 is available for download at: http://www.veganlifestylemagazine.com/.
I’m happy to be able to announce that an interview I did with The Advocate is out now. Patricia Gannon wrote the feature discussing my current series, In Our Veins, and the message behind it. I’m going to quote myself right now, but I think it’s an important point to get across: “We’re capable of destruction but also absolutely amazing things. We can live in harmony in a responsible manner.” I create these paintings to provide a visual of what is going on with our planet, as well as what could be, as a reminder that we are all connected and should all do our part to preserve nature.
