The Golden Mean at Jim Kempner Fine Art
World-renowned for her hyper-realistic sculptures of swimmers and bathers, Carole A. Feuerman’s exhibition features a new collection of work, most notably life-size and monumental bronze figures. The Golden Mean, the centerpiece of this solo exhibition, is a towering 16-foot male diver moments before doing a back dive. It is an icon for achieving the impossible, for the struggle of survival and strength, and the resilience of the human spirit. This piece is a testament to Feuerman’s ambitious vision by successfully engineering a two-ton sculpture to stand upside down on 6-inch wrists. The “golden mean” refers to the ancient mathematical equation epitomizing balance and proportion. The concept of striving for both achievements while maintaining balance in structure and in life is a common thread throughout Feuerman’s work. The Golden Mean, on display in Jim Kempner Fine Art’s sculpture garden, exemplifies the important, close relationship between balance, proportion and mathematics.
