"Beauty and the Beasts in the New Realm," Reggie Michael Rodrigue, louisianaesthetic, July 22, 2012

"...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."

We do not see just a lovely flower or a cute animal or a pretty face; rather, we see commentaries on human condition, including an observance of our ironic behaviors and the contradictions of our habits."

"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."

"Spotlight: Surrealist Painter, Amy Guidry," Ruthie Holloway, Beautiful Crime, July 24, 2012

"Balancing on the edge of both photorealism and pop surrealism, American artist, Amy Guidry paints nature with an intricate hand and an inventive mind. Drawing on various influential subject matter as varied as dreams and C.S. Lewis novel characters, Guidry's world of strange, human-like and captivating characters of animals lends the viewer an unusual insight in to her surrealist yet photorealist painted world – check out the skeletal characters contrasted with the intricately painted rock formations as testament."
