Excerpt: Think, for example, of Frank Stella or any of a number of aesthetic shape shifters of the 1960s who introduced such innovative pictorial formats as the shaped canvas. Likewise, Harris’s artful, asymmetrically contoured quilts often subvert the hidebound designs and prevailing expectations that linger in the firmament of quilts and quilting.
Harris’s work is on view in a sister exhibition at gallery 9338 Campau through April 30, 2016.
Additionally, on April 19 Harris will be a guest on “Detroit Performs” at 7:30 p.m. on WTVS-TV. She will be speaking about her work, past and present.
