An exhibition of superb works by Derry artist Terence Coyle will be launched this Friday, September 6, at the Gordon Gallery on Pump Street and runs until September 28.
For this latest exhibition, Terry Coyle brings together a recent collection of oils on canvas, in the year Derry celebrates being City of Culture, that have been inspired by his native city. Visitors can expect to see cityscapes and landmarks that trigger the senses, evoke a certain pride, familiarity and nostalgia.
Speaking of his work, Terry told the ‘Journal’: “Basically, this show is all about Derry and looking at it from a perspective that hasn’t been seen before, and I work in an impressionist and expressionist style.”
As well as exhibiting, Terry is now working from a new studio space at Studio Six, above the Gordon Gallery. Helping out at the new London Street Gallery for the duration of the Culture year has also kept him busy in 2013.
Paintings include writing on walls, church spires and the rural environment, looking at changes around the city in recent years. Works also include images of gates and coastal scenes of the surrounding Donegal landscape. His use of subtle colours and cool tones capture the atmosphere of the North West of Ireland.
Shona McCarthy, CEO of Derry’s Culture Company opens the show this Friday at 7pm. ‘Walls, Gates & Spires’ then runs until September 28. Admission free. All welcome. www.gordon-gallery.com
