black & white photograph
'This... deals with sacrifice and ritual - reflecting the influence of Noble's Roman Catholic upbringing. She wishes to immortalise 'the things that people leave in a commemoration: the gifts that people give to a place or thing'. Illuminated by a special application of light that emphasises their sacredness, objects become icons. Noble's Lilies radiate from within. A bunch of cut roses becomes amaranthine, like those on tombstones - and just as brittle.'
