Tim Noble and Sue Webster

xxxxxx

Tim Noble and Sue Webster create sculptural artworks that challenge the perception of normality by incorporating contradictory elements. What appears to be a careless pile of rubbish consisting of discarded waste, scrap metal and even road kill turns out to be a self-portrait of shadows projected onto the gallery wall. The heaps of trash situated in the gallery transforms into silhouettes of ‘Tim and Sue’ having a drink and smoke. Combining the tangible rejects of modern society with ethereal light creates an unusual entity. I believe that these artists relate to my own work through the sheer abundance of raw materials to work from and portraying them quite literally in a different light. It is through their transformation that people begin to acknowledge them in a different way which is something that I want to highlight within my work.
