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 has allowed him to combine art and traditional craft techniques.


Noonan has had solo exhibitions in Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom, while also exhibiting in notable survey exhibitions and biennials. His work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums in Australia and internationally.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
