"...Despite all these correspondences, Guidry isn't just repeating history, however. There's a new sensibility to these paintings that probably could not have been registered in Tanning's world of the 1940's. Whereas, Tanning painted herself and her heroines in slightly ominous domestic settings, Guidry paints herself in a forest of birch trees floating in a white void. In symbolic terms, Guidry has created a tabula rasa ready for a new investigation into what it means to be a Western woman in the 21st Century."View Website

"Dichotomies of human existence- such as life and death, and our relationship to nature- are among the topics that arise in the artwork of Amy Guidry and Jessica Goldfinch. While strikingly different in imagery and technique, the artists paint recognized subjects to convey these psychological concepts in compassionate, sensitive, and thought-provoking ways."
"At first sight of Amy Guidry's masterpieces, there is an immediate sense of a deeper meaning in her work. This undoubtedly stems from Guidry's lifelong practice of using art as a 'means of communication, as well as [her] enjoyment.'"

"The Art of Business and the Business of Art," Patricia Gannon, L Magazine, Spring 2013
"Both New Realm and In Our Veins are long narratives of thier own and each pertains to a single idea: strong, independent women challenging traditional myths, and the environmental relationship between human and other."
"Regardless of the ethos, which isn't always as obvious as some onlookers hope for, we find Amy's work pushes the boundaries of logic in various valuable directions. Art should provoke, and she certainly does."Read Review
