David Noonan

In the collage artist's London studio

Often stylistically referencing arthouse film, Ballarat-born collage artist David Noonan brings together a mix of black and white found imagery from books, magazines, film stills and archive photographs to create large-scale silk-screen prints of dramatic scenes and characters.

Through the layering of selected images, Noonan encourages notions of time and place to blur, intentionally rendering his images unrecognisable and infusing the work with an atmosphere of mystery and dislocation. Playing with perception, Noonan considers pictures to be “a dialogue between figuration and abstraction.”

In light of the artist’s recent contribution to the Melbourne edition of House of Voltaire, sponsored by QICGRE, Noonan opens up his studio and offers insight into both his singular practice and his creative space.
