Small Collage

The Temple Sisters have consistently created collages that incorporate objects, images and everyday items from past generations – including aged photographs and illustrations, lost books, forgotten letters, vintage drawings, sewing thread, and even brittle cellophane tape.  Collage is an essential part of their process.  In some cases, intuition supersedes narrative, with a goal to create intimate images that engage the viewer in questions about the essential – but ephemeral – nature of the quotidian, the pedestrian, and the ordinary.  They are expressions of the sublime in the prosaic.
