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.
Revealing my latest finished painting Lattice. This piece features a slender crab spider which are found in western and central Europe, the United States and Canada. Lattice was recently featured in my collectors newsletter, which you can receive here: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html. Lattice is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high, and can be viewed on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/lattice.html.
I’ve recently finished a new small painting in my In Our Veins series. This piece is titled Interlace and is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. It features a Manx Loaghtan sheep, which is a rare primitive breed of sheep native to the Isle of Man. They were near extinction in the 1970s but their population has increased to where they are now “At Risk” status. The human eye in the center of the rose refers to our connection to all flora and fauna. You can view Interlace on my website as well as the rest of the series at: https://amyguidry.com/interlace.html.

This summer has been incredibly busy to say the least. I’ve had to miss out on openings for shows because I’m already at the opening for another. I suppose these are the moments I could use a stunt double… At least I can vicariously enjoy the Wally Workman Gallery opening for 100 Degrees thanks to the photos. The exhibit is up now through September 1st and features new work by several of the gallery’s artists. One of which being mine… you may recognize this painting from an earlier post. You can also view it here: www.amyguidry.com/succession.html.
My next show is just around the bend as July is coming to a close. My painting Succession will be featured at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX as part of their group exhibition, “100 Degrees.” The show will feature works by several of the gallery’s represented artists. The exhibit dates are August 4th through September 1st, with a Preview held during their First Thursday Artwalk on August 2nd, from 6-8pm. The official opening reception will be held August 4th, from 6-8pm. You can preview the show online here: http://www.wallyworkmangallery.com/group_show.lasso?itemid=792.

I’ve just finished another painting in the In Our Veins series while simultaneously working on my painting One for The Great West Coast Migration exhibit. This painting is titled Succession and is 6″ wide by 12″ high, acrylic on canvas. It just arrived at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX the other day and will be included in their upcoming show, 100 Degrees, starting August 4th through September 1st. When working on this piece, I was thinking of orders- biological orders, our need for order, hierarchy. The human skull at the bottom leads up to larger animals and butterflies, illustrating how new life grows and is sustained by dead organisms. The horse and the rose at the top- though I took artistic liberty with the rose- utilize their placement and size to emphasize their importance. While humans may be the more dominant species, I wanted to focus on the significance and the role of other species in nature.
View the painting online here: www.amyguidry.com/succession.html. You can also see it in person at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX during the 100 Degrees Preview Party on August 2nd from 6-8pm and during the opening reception August 4th from 6-8pm.
