Diverse ‘Elements’ come together
Damon Homer is best known as a guitarist in the long-standing T&T rock band jointpop. However, he’s more than just an axe-man; Homer is a visual artist and recently took up photography. He will show 14 of his photos in a joint exhibition that opens on Thursday at the Art Society.
Marsha Bhagwansingh invited Homer to show along with her elder sister Neala; their mutual friend Hugh Blanc, a writer who is also a painter, is doing a book event at the show as well, partly because Bhagwansingh’s painting is on the cover of his book Between Bodies Lie, said Bhagwansingh. “The four of us are actually quite close,” she said.
Neala is also showing photos; both she and Homer have mostly nature-themed shots in the show, said Bhagwansingh, who will be exhibiting some 30 oils in the show. Homer, who draws, admits he’s only seriously been doing photography for less than a year; but this is far from Bhagwansingh’s first time at the rodeo. She has shown in both solo and group exhibits since 2000 at galleries such as Fine Art, the Southern Art Gallery and the Art Society.
Elements opens to the public on Thursday at 6 pm at the Art Society, corner Jamaica Boulevard and St Vincent Avenue, Federation Park, Port-of-Spain, and closes on Sunday. Gallery hours are 10 am-8 pm daily and 10 am-4 pm on Sunday. Info: 752-8200.
