We’re used to some pretty mindbending visual trickery here at It’s Nice That but get ready for something extra special to blow off any Monday morning cobwebs. For their new show at London’s Blain Southern Gallery, Tim Noble and Sue Webster have continued their exploration of portraiture by creating these extraordinarily detailed silhouette pieces using old wool and broken tools.The actual sculptures couldn’t be much less prepossessing, scattered with sawdust and other debris, but thanks to the light they become compelling, unnerving and unexpectedly beautiful.
