Excited to share my new painting Ouroboros. Black panthers in Asia and Africa are actually melanistic leopards while those in the Americas are melanistic jaguars. Beauty and protection are among much of the symbolism behind panthers while the snake is seen as a symbol of rebirth. Ouroboros is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high, and you can view it (as well as the rest of the series) online here: https://amyguidry.com/ouroboros.html.
A collector kindly sent me these home installation views of my paintings. I love the arrangement of these pieces with personal photos and other art. Integrate and Regrowth are paired together and Efflorescence is centered between a photograph and a wall sculpture.
I’m happy to reveal my new painting Regrowth, created specifically for Modern Eden Gallery’s Night Garden exhibition. The exhibit explores nature and earth magic, flora and fauna, death and wilderness. The human eyes within the leaves refer to our connection to all of nature. Regrowth is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. The exhibit is up now through January 4, 2019. You can view the painting online here as well as my available work at Modern Eden: https://www.moderneden.com/search?type=product&q=amy+guidry .

I’ve been painting a few big cats lately (I’ve been a fan since I was a little kid) and am happy to see some find new homes. Bestow and Interconnect have both gone to the West Coast- Seattle and Los Angeles. Both paintings are acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.
Received my copies of the May 2018 Couture issue of Vie Magazine in the mail yesterday. I was excited and honored to see my painting Interconnectfeatured in there as part of a teaser article in anticipation of an upcoming interview. The Couture issue is available on newsstands now.
My painting Interconnect is featured in the May 2018 issue of Vie Magazine. It is part of their Introspections page and is a teaser to a larger article to be featured in their Animal issue coming out in August. Look for Interconnect in the Couture issue out now. And if you’re in New York, you can see Interconnect in person at Gristle Art Gallery now through May 5th.
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.
