Monochrome, antique and modern. David Noonan's works at David Kordansky Gallery L.A.

Not wanting to work digitally and to only transfer black & white photographs to cloth may come across as some what antique or dated.

Early on, David Noonan discovered the effect which seemingly profane techniques can have and he has been using them for his works ever since.

David composes his inspirations from film, theatre, literature, sculptures on large format textile print, pictorial constructions of motion and masks, grimaces and revelations.

His conduct of gesture and mimic, as well as the striking crossovers of the collage's fragments bring to mind raw takes from old silent films.

Apart from the apparent snapshots, the key of the pictures is the sensitivity that seems absent from many pictures in our digital age. Alas, we are not allowed to touch the works, yet the structure of textiles is nothing new to us anyway.

The bleached, printed and processed layers emit an intense deepness, which merges the basic idea of craftsmanship with distinct stories and the grand art of design.

David Noonan is a native of Australia and lives in London. He is famous for his monochromatic screen prints and video installations, which always bear the influences from film, set design and theatre costumes.

On the verge of forty, he can look back on countless exhibitions, including Sydney, London, Madrid, Miami and Korea.

The David Kordansky Gallery in Los Angeles will be showing how an artist is able to narrate timeless stories with his collages, until the 23rd of October.
