AN artist who builds his work from scrap parts has gone back in time for his latest exhibition in Bradford.

Geoff Latz has shown his passion for history by creating 20 pieces for his Gem of Little Germany exhibition.

The show includes paintings featuring pins and wires and kinetic sculptures from history and countries across the world, including Egypt, China, India and Africa.

There are also pieces inspired by Leonardo da Vinci and Chinese medicine, made using materials including steel and metal alloys.

The exhibition be at Kala Sangam Arts Centre, Forster Court, until Friday, September 4.

It also features work from upcoming artist Mathew Schofield, who displays sketches inspired by the historic buildings of Little Germany.

Mr Latz, of Garton Drive, Eccleshill, also hopes to showcase new artists at his free show.

"I just love bringing things through to people," the 56-year-old said.

"I'm trying to introduce new talent and other pieces from other artists in the exhibition over the coming weeks.

"I also like to bring through new talent from Bradford and further afield.

"I have had some fantastic feedback about the display.

"I get inspired by anything that captures my imagination, anything going. I have a passion for history."
