David Noonan's atmospheric exhibition, Before and Now, at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery consists of a series of bleach paintings and gouaches on canvas or paper as well as a large curtain/wall hanging, an owl sculpture and a hanging light sculpture. Linking these seemingly disparate objects is an aesthetic of nostalgia that comes from tropes of 1970s design that Noonan incorporates in many ways throughout the exhibition.

Exhibition Dates: 11 September – 11 October 2003
