Harris and McGhee's distinct abstract aesthetic – having endured and evolved for more than 50 years – has brought the artists critical acclaim. Harris is a fiber artist whose process emulates that of a painter, often revising her earlier decisions and doubling back in a medium that traditionally progresses linearly. McGhee is a painter who frees his canvases from their flatness through the kinetic energy created by using them not only as support, but almost as the subject. In diverging from tradition, these two Detroit veterans have converged on common ground. “Repetition, Rhythm, and Vocab” presents Harris and McGhee together in homage to the harmony of their improvisational languages and to the city in which they found their voices.
