Stagecraft brings together silkscreen collages on fabric, tapestries and film which Ballarat-born internationsl artist David Noonan has made between 2015 and 2020. Noonan repurposes found photographic images to create works which are ambiguous, often with a focus on a solitary haunting figure. These collage works have a shadowy sense of mystery, while the layering of the figurative and abstract imagery creates a tension between abstraction and representation, and between truth and illusion.
David Noonan is known for large-scale monochromatic collages on linen comprised of fabrics which are torn, folded, cut, stitched and combined with silkscreened images. Recently he has made tapestries in collaboration with Belgian weavers, combining art and traditional craft techniques.
Noonan has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom and he has been included in notable survey exhibitions and biennials. His work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums in Australia and internationally.
David Noonan: Stagecraft is exclusive to the Art Gallery of Ballarat. David Noonan is represented by Anna Schwartz Gallery (Melbourne), Roslyn Oxley9 (Sydney) and Modern Art (London).
