Art with Shadows – Tim Noble and Sue Webster’s Trashy Shadows


Tim Noble and Sue Webster have created a series of pieces of art using garbage and light as the medium.  How do I mean?  Shadowplay.  Silhouette craziness.  Something that looks completely different in the light than it does in shadow  is how I mean.  Tim and Sue’s pieces have a spotlight shone on them, and the resulting images are displayed on the wall behind.

This series of works really gives food to the idea that “nothing is as it seems.”

Dirty White Trash (With Gulls) – 1998 – I especially like the touch of the seagulls in the lower center of the work.

  1. That is quite amazing, it’s great food for though to think about all that can be done with imagination and dedication. Always hungry for more great art like this, to see something different, original and that leave us wordless for a moment! I guess it tells us to take a second look when something don’t look as good as we think on first sight!
