Beauty is not necessarily about something being perfect or whole according to David Chidgey. Perhaps this is why he is so drawn to the medium of mosaic. By taking individual fragments, imperfect and broken, he is able to combine them in such a way as to reveal a rich tapestry for the senses. David does this by contrasting elements of light and shadow, shape and texture, brilliant color and muted tones through the language of mosaic.
David’s work is inspired by his early years growing up on a small farm in South Texas, nature, and living abroad which sparked his interest of other cultures and languages. David maintains a studio practice in San Antonio.
