New Swimmer Triptych

by Kelsey Zalimeni

Carole Feuerman's latest 2D works feature more bright and beautiful prints of her patented swimmers. This trio is the latest addition to her expansive print series. Here we have Capri, Catalina, and Moran, each smoothly rendered before a pastel background tiled with sketches of their likeness. The group adds even more breadth and depth to Carole's ambitious print project.

The swimmers are photorealistic, a conscious choice by Carole to keep them stylistically separate from her hyperreal sculptures.  The details are just enough to convey the their supple skin and the unique texture of the shiny suits and caps.  The saturated figure sits perfectly before the wash background. The two planes are thematically bound by the repetition of the swimmer's portrait in each. These new prints further affirm the span of Carole's versatile talent.
