David Noonan’s fourth solo exhibition at Foxy Production comprises a new series of silkscreened, collaged paintings. The works’ distressed surfaces and fractured subjects sustain a tension between abstraction and figuration, where images seem to subside into the materiality of the canvas. Printed in monochrome on raw linen, the works’ patterns and patchworking undermine the legibility of the scenes they project. Subjects appear reflective, caught in the midst of transformation or constraint. Each composition is fragmented; characters seem ethereal, losing their holding to the heft of the material they are rendered upon.
