Balance, 2012, Oil on Bronze, 32 x 26 x 17 inches. 

Watch artist Carole Feuerman at work, creating Balance. From precisely placing strokes of paint to strategically applying water drops, follow along and discover the process behind making these beautiful sculptures. With over 100 layers of paint, rigorous glazing and sanding it can take years to create these pieces. The minute details in the tiny water drops and wisps of hair, the precise application of eyebrows and eyelashes all must be perfect in order to create such a realistic sculpture, and Carole Feuerman achieves just that. Complete with tan lines and water drops it is easy to imagine this swimmer resting in the lotus position whilst mediating after a long and demanding swim. 

Balance will be featured at the National Hotel in Miami, which is celebrating its 75th Anniversary during Miami Art Week. Miami Art Week takes place the first week of December and showcases over 20 art fairs accompanied by more than 100 events. http://www.miamiandbeaches.com/events/art-basel/art-festivals. This life-size sculpture fits perfectly within the Miami art scene, reflecting the notion that this sunny city revolves around warm weather and beaches. Additionally, as many art lovers know Miami Art Week can be rather hectic and overwhelming, therefore, serene and delicate Balance becomes a reminder for visitors to rest, take a reprieve, and reflect in order to fully enjoy the amount of art this city has to offer.
