Indeed, their art practically bleeds Miami. It's filled with pastels, dulcet tones that rip from page and screen with spiritual vibrancy. Sharp lines abound, distorting images or collecting in electric zig-zags that bolt around purposefully. They're pieces that would look as much at home on an album cover for some electro-pop band as they do on the walls of a gallery which isn't to say they simply languish in pop appeal. While the TM Sister's works are immediately gratifying, they contain an extraordinary depth, especially considering the interactive nature of this exhibit. The pair promises some elements of installation art, with pieces that work primarily based on the presence of a spectator. "We don't want to spoil it, but we really want the person viewing [the exhibit] to feel special," they say. "The work will be there whether [the spectator] is there or not, but the other level is if they are there it completes it." In addition, the pair will be collaborating with a live band as one part of the exhibit during Friday's 6 p.m. reception. A corresponding art book ("It's like a fancier version of the zines we've done in the past, with notes, our inspirations, and documentation of our work," says Tasha) will be available for sale and signing.
