A 'F***ing Beautiful' detail

Timothy "Tim" Noble (born 1966) and Susan "Sue" Webster (born 1967), are two British artists who work as a collaborative duo, and are associated with the post-YBA generation of artists.

Timothy "Tim" Noble (born 1966) and Susan "Sue" Webster (born 1967), are two British artists who work as a collaborative duo, and are associated with the post-YBA generation of artists. Tim Noble and Sue Webster's work can be divided into the 'Light Works' and the 'Shadow Works', though Webster does not see them as completely separate. The light sculptures, created in tandem with their shadow investigations, are constructed out of computer sequenced light-bulbs that perpetually flash, sending out messages of, often simultaneous, love and hate. The sculptures reference the iconic pop culture symbols of Britain and America, recalling carnival shows and signage typical of working-class sea-side Britain, Piccadilly Circus, Las Vegas and Times Square.
