Due to COVID-19 restrictions The Art Gallery of Ballarat is currently closed to the public. However, the exhibition Stagecraft can be viewed online in full here.
Stagecraft brings together silkscreen collages on fabric, tapestries and film which David Noonan has made between 2015 and 2020.
Ballarat-born artist David Noonan lives and works in London. He is known for large-scale monochromatic collages on linen comprised of fabrics which are torn, folded, cut, stitched and combined with silkscreened images. He used this approach to produce his 2018 atmospheric film A dark and quiet place. Recently, Noonan has made tapestries in collaboration with Belgian weavers, which have allowed him to combine art and traditional craft techniques. HHe has been the subject of solo museum and commercial gallery exhibitions in Australia the United Kingdom, Europe and America 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).
