David Noonan

David Noonan’s screenprints bring modernist cinema, circus and vaudeville into the 21st Century, his pictures a collage of found images, film stills and strange Gothic horror photographs that bring to mind a world of stagecraft, of carnival, his characters hiding behind masks and costumes, an extreme reflection of our dour existence.

"Life should be lived on the edge. You have to exercise rebellion: to refuse to tape yourself to rules, to refuse your own success, to refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, every idea as a true challenge - and then you are going to live your life on a tightrope." - Philippe Petit
Petit made his historic tightrope walk between the two towers 39 years ago today.
