Catalogue Note

The fusion of opposite approaches is central to the dynamic of Tim Noble and Sue Webster’s work.  It is structured around the opposition of light and dark, object and shadow, trash and romance, high art and low, form and anti-form and other usually incompatible concepts. 

fuckingbeautiful (RED) is a unique neon artwork created by the artists for the (RED) Auction, their infamous slogan contorted into the shape of a red neon heart.  Inspired by the glittering lights of Las Vegas and the extravagant illuminations of Piccadilly Circus, their light works send out messages of love and hate. 

“People do read a significance into the signs.  Each viewer can take what they want from the light pieces which makes it personal, something you can make your own for a moment”.
