PARKINSON resident David Humphreys has become an expert in the ancient and enduring art form called mosaic.

The medium involves creating images with small pieces of coloured glass, stone or other materials.

In his exhibition, simply titled Pieces, Mr Humphreys is set to dazzle art lovers with his unique and beautiful mosaic creations.

A mining engineer by day, Mr Humphreys has established his own mosaic style.

Heavily influenced by his professional background, Mr Humphreys said he loved to apply mathematical principles to his geometric designs.

"I enjoy the precision of cutting glass and the challenge of making a difficult cut," he said.

"And I enjoy making something beautiful out of something beautiful."

Mr Humphreys works with a simple colour palette to enhance the clean lines of his work, bringing the age-old art of mosaic into the 21st century.

A feature of Mr Humphreys' exhibition is series of mosaics depicting many of Brisbane's bridges, including his prize winning study of the Story Bridge and of the new Kurilpa Bridge.

Pieces: Mosaic exhibition

 

Exhibition dates: March 6 to 11

 

Launch evening: March 7, 6pm to 8pm

 

Viewing times: 10am to 4.30pm
