Tim Noble and Sue Webster, who work as a team, are among the most celebrated of their generation of British artists. Their first exhibition in New York, I <3 You was held at Deitch Projects in the spring of 2000. Like alchemists or magicians, Noble and Webster make something extraordinary out of the most humble materials. They create romantic images of hope out of darkness and debris. Their shadow sculptures are complimented by light sculptures made from the cheap crystal bulbs of fairground signs. The artists are inspired by the way modest illuminated signs become beacons of hope in the gloomy mist of Blackpool and other downmarket seaside resorts of the artistsí native Britain. They evoke romantic dreams that transcend the squalor and bleakness of the streets that prosperity has not reached.
