"10 Women, 10 Perspectives Unveiled," Jean West Rudnicki, Change Magazine, October 2007, p18
...Louisiana artist Amy Guidry's portraits are large, close-up images of faces that border on photorealism. "The focus is on the human experience as a whole - who we are, where we come from and how we interact with one another," Guidry writes. "The compositions are done in a dynamic manner so as to bring the viewer a more intimate look into the subject." Kendrick explains that just as Georgia O'Keef's blown-up images of tiny flowers demanded attention, the scale and distortion that sometimes takes place in Guidry's large images also helps the viewer see the image in a new way...View Article

"Sleeping Beauty. Snow White. Cinderella. Rapunzel.
In most classic fairy tales, the pattern is clear: A young woman finds herself in danger, and it's up to Prince Charming to ride out on his white steed, slay any troublesome witches or dragons that get in his way and rescue the fair maiden with a kiss.
But that's exactly what won't be happening in New Realm, an exhibit showcasing a series of fairy tale-inspired paintings by Amy Guidry."

My work explores the human condition- who we are, where we come from, and how we interact with each other and our environment. By examining our tendencies and thought processes, I strive to engage the viewer through a personal connection to the subject. This, in turn, can also lead the viewer to do his or her own reflecting and personal examination. My style of painting very much follows that of contemporary Realism, but particularly with this piece, is also influenced by the psychological aspects and dream analysis of Surrealism.View Article
