DAVID NOONAN‘s eerie images draw on a vast collection of avant-garde theatre and dance photography from  the 1960s and 70s. These photos, gathered from magazines, antique books, archival documents, and also tapestries, silk screens, and fabric collages are a doorway into the past and a jumping-off point for the artist’s aesthetic explorations. David’s dedication to ancient textile-making compresses these many ‘pasts’ into the window-space of his paintings, collages, and sculptures.

At the studio, one has the impression these theatrical, performative worlds bleed out of the canvas to take over the artist’s space, like a memory too big, loud, or haunting to be contained by the past.


Where They’ is a visual documentation of the creative environments of artist & people, that meet during my travels, of homes and studios.
