David Noonan (b.1969, Ballarat, Australia) lives and works in London. He received his BFA in Painting from Ballarat University College (1989) and his MFA from Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne (1992).
Noonan’s collage works, films, paintings, sculptural objects, tapestries and installations are characterised by a complex layering of found historical and contemporary images. In his work, he is interested in the liminal and temporal; in the dialogue between figuration and abstraction and a de-linear sense of time; in ambiguities, contradictions and in-between spaces. His work often displays a monochromatic palette that references his source material and presents a distilled aesthetic. He explores how materials behave together and influence each other to create a form of visual and material harmonics that inform his creative processes.
