Art Crush: Amy Guidry “In Our Veins”

In her series “In Our Veins”, the artist examines the idea of all forms of beings and their interaction and habitation of the land, using underlying thematic ideology and brilliant imagery via thought-provoking paintings, while walking the line between abstract, photorealism, and pop surrealism.
