David Noonan often works with found photographic imagery taken from performance manuals, textile patterns and archive photographs to make densely layered montages. For his limited edition print for Chisenhale Gallery Noonan has created a screen print, which brings together a distinctive portrait image overlayed with an intricate textile design. Each print is uniquely hand-embossed by the artist.
