Lot Essay

'By the middle of the nineties the artist couple began to work with light. They were inspired by a trip to Las Vegas although they say that watching videos of films about Las Vegas inspired them as well. Exuberant, vivacious and redolent of the perverse glamour of British traveling funfairs, these light pieces took the 'trash aesthetic' of rockabilly Gothicism and turned it into free-floating emblems of desire and sensory overload.' (M. Bracewell, 'Tim Noble and Sue Webster: Shadowplay', exh. cat., Apocalypse, London 2000, p. 168).
