Terryl Godoy exhibits at H.O.C.

He is popularly known as “man at work” and his labours have taken him to streets and lanes at home and abroad. For the next few weeks art fans can walk those routes with artist Terryl Godoy at his latest exhibition.

If pictures tell a thousand words, then tireless painter Terryl Godoy has enough stories to fill an entire library. But he has chosen the art gallery at the House of Culture for his latest exhibition, which puts the spotlight squarely on an important aspect of the City?s landscape.

“This exhibition, the theme is “The Life of the Wooden Homes” and actually its people, and that’s exactly what we are dealing with. We are dealing with old wooden buildings and the people are elderly people that have been living all their lives. Like a lady told me she had built that house, the green one on Armadillo Street, 1954. But so many of these homes have different stories and it is a wonderful thing for me to paint these homes because they have so much different architectural designs that you don’t see in the wooden homes that they make today.”

Thirteen pieces make up this exhibition, which will run until after the September celebrations. Godoy says it took him about seven months to put it all together.

“I have two paintings that I love so much. And we are talking about the house that belongs to Mr. Western, and the green one that belongs to Miss Myvett. Those are the two houses that I really did so many details on. And they have some incredible stories.”

Stories, which the painter says will be appreciated by everyone.

“The elderly–it would also take them down memory lane and the young because it’s about the past and what they can learn from–the way people used to do things.”

The paintings are acrylics on canvas and are available for sale. Part of the proceeds of the exhibition are returned to the owners of the houses that are featured in the exhibition.
