Tim Noble and Sue Webster, 'Black Bottoms', Limited Edition Diptych Monoprints, Edition 28


‘If they say that necessity is the mother of invention, then the original concept for this obscene series of body part prints was born from just that. During a residency on one of the most beautifully passive and colourful of the Caribbean Islands – we found ourselves banished in order to create. Unfortunately this idyll rendered us impotent and we retracted back into our darkened room and turned to our bodies for inspiration.’ - Sue Webster

Continuing their investigative journey into self-portraiture, Tim Noble and Sue Webster have produced a series of unique monoprints entitled ‘Black Bottoms’, in which the artists use their own bodies as human printing machines.

Each unique work is printed directly from their bodies onto Somerset Velvet 300gsm paper.
