About the artwork
David Noonan’s ongoing interest in combining abstract and figurative images is apparent in this one–of–a–kind tapestry made exclusively for House of Voltaire Melbourne.
This particular face is important to Noonan’s visual vocabulary. He has used it a number of times over the past ten years in combination with various overlays. In this project Noonan employs a hard edge abstract design that contrasts with the more organic qualities of the face but compliments the extreme graphic makeup on the face.
