Sherry Markovitz: Shimmer, Paintings and Sculptures, 1979-2006 by Chris Bruce
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book brings together forty-two works spanning nearly three decades of Seattle artist Sherry Markovitz's remarkable development. It traces the evolution of her work from the obsessively beaded and extravagantly patterned taxidermy heads to the more subdued and haunting figurative paintings and doll sculptures. The work is intensely alive and transformative, its sources rooted in personal experience set in conversation with diverse cultural paradigms. Throughout more than a quarter century of work, Markovitz has shown a remarkable consistency of vision, intensity of focus, and absolute acceptance of beauty, which she extends regularly to opulence. Through highly informative and engaging essays by Chris Bruce and Josine Ianco-Starrels as well as the artist's own commentaries, "Sherry Markovitz: Shimmer" provides the defining statement on this unique artist and her captivating work. Chris Bruce is director of the Museum of Art, Washington State University, Pullman. Josine Ianco-Starrels is the curator at the Schneider Museum of Art, Southern Oregon University, Ashland.
