The Temple Sisters, Holly and Ashlee, work in mixed media to generate works on paper., canvas and create small assemblages. Each work they devise is meant to engage the viewer in questions about the temporal and fluid nature of image, memory, and cultural language of expression.
Collaboration, both in applied method as well as conceptually, is at the core of their work. They each find the implicit trust required by working in tandem to be one of the most interesting and integral parts of their art. A shared history and shared aesthetic emerges as a partnership in paint and paper. It is their deep belief that collaboration – artist-to-artist, art-to-observer – is at the heart of the creative process.
