Artist Reception: May 16, 5-7 pm
Allie McGhee is a nationally renowned artist who is a native Detroiter. He attended Cass Technical High School and completed his undergraduate work at Eastern Michigan University in 1965. His paintings are included in prestigious national museum collections, such as the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York. McGhee has been an ongoing participant in the University of Michigan Taubman Institute “Art+Science” Program; a program that connects Taubman Scholars with leading contemporary artists for an exploration of the commonalities and paths to discovery in their respective fields.
McGhee’s abstract paintings have evolved from an early expressionistic and cubist style of figuration, into a uniquely personal free formed and fluid style of abstraction. “As an artist I have always been inspired by the diverse rhythms of our environment,” McGhee says. “It has been a great reserve of energy for my work. In my recent works instead of seeing the natural world as a rational observer, I see if from within as if through a telescope or microscope.”
The artist’s mixed media paintings, push the boundaries of both painting and sculpture. McGhee abandons the traditional approach to making a painting by using tools, instead of the paint brush, to scrape and splatter the paint across the surface of the canvas, allowing his hands to interact with the paint and the surface in a visceral way.
