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.
The selection and collection process is an everyday experience. In
resistance to an ever-quickening world, the slowness in his work returns significance to the discarded and overlooked. The visible and tangible history in the textures, scuffs and general wear of the debris/found objects become the basis for, or inform new work. Gradual in production, the works are layered with subtle gestures and mark making built up over time.
Ro has participated in several group and solo exhibitions throughout Australia.
