Partners in both life and art, Noble and Webster entered the international art scene in the mid 1990s with their first critically acclaimed show—"British Rubbish." It was received as a kind of subversive reaction to their art world peers. Ironically it gained them worldwide notoriety. Extravagant, sometimes coarse, and always sharply clever, Wasted Youth is a both a paean to and sly denunciation of modern consumer culture. Their art, deemed "beautiful Baroque Kitsch" by the London Daily Telegraph, challenges our sense of conventional beauty by "rehabilitating the detritus of society and turning it into something pleasing."—the Guggenheim
