About the work:
I Cement What I Said, Original Artwork by Ro Noonan.
This piece is part of Chromatic Retreat, a group exhibition showcasing the work of 17 Australian artists exploring their practice within the limits of a largely achromatic palette.
“I find it hard finishing work – stepping away, declaring that you’ll do no more. Occasionally works are difficult and resist getting to this point, pushing back on the full stop you’re hoping to put down. That struggle, that challenge is mostly welcomed – this work has followed me around over the last few years, its incompleteness hovering like a shadow. It occasionally called to be revisited on and off, tentatively adding layers. In this case it is the act of removal or the taking away; stripping back almost all of the colour made getting this work to a point of completion achievable. There is a through-ness, a peeling back that is made possible; black, white and grey turn shadowy as if to momentarily move or slip off the surface,” Noonan says.
About the Artist:
Ro Noonan is a Melbourne based artist whose practice oscillates between painting and sculpture. He has an innate preoccupation with materials and surface, in particular the excess and the bi-products of construction: cut offs, supports and general debris.
