Shelli Markee

Shelli Markee draws in cold-fused steel. Her flock of wire birds crowds the airspace at Fancy with fat bellies, fringed wings, and delicate beaks. The outlines are in thicker wire, with the details in a finer gauge. One bird has the familiar profile of a crow, while another wears the longer beak of a tern. “They’re not one particular kind of bird,” Markee told me. “They’re my bird.” Her sculptures transform a scribbled rendering of feathers and flight into a few clean lines.
