Feuerman’s very busy calendar for 2016 and 2017 follows on the coattails of very successful 2015 season, where Feuerman’s painted bronzes filled the landmark National Hotel in South Beach during Art Basel Week. Described in The Observer’s Winners and, um, Not Winners, of Art Basel Miami Beach 2015”, Feuerman’s Solo Exhibition, featuring the iconic Survival of Serena and The Golden Mean, was touted as being on the Bucket List of shows not to miss during the week. Rubbing elbows with celebrities, reporters, collectors, and gallerists, Feuerman’s work could also be seen at the art behemoth that is Art Miami, providing a hyperreal focal point amongst much of the conceptual work featured. If you happen to be in Palm Beach Florida, a must stop would be Gallery Biba on Worth Avenue.

After Feuerman’s showings at the star studded Art Basel and Art Miami Fairs, and after the crowds and tourists that had flocked to Miami left the “Magic City”, Feuerman’s work made the move to her next solo show at Markowicz Fine Art, in the Miami Design District.  The opening was fun filled with a Meet and Greet with Feuerman signing books and a special edition print as she celebrated at the opening. The show will be up through the end of the month. Debuting were her newest works, The Dancer and Dancing Hoop, along with her newest painted bronzes.

Never one to slow down, Feuerman has forged ahead, with multiple shows for 2016 and 2017.  Her sculpture Christina will soon make an appearance at the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, February 11th with Timothy Yarger Fine Art.  She also has 2 Solo Shows in 2016, one at the Deland Museum of Art in Florida, on April 15th and the other in New York City at C24 Gallery, May 6th.  Feuerman will return to Europe, exhibiting in “Die Welt als Bühne | The World is a Stage”, at Haus Beda in Bitburg, Germany on April, 24th.  She will also solidify her position as a permanent fixture at the next Venice Biennale with a solo show in the park on the Grand Canal, called “Dancing on the Water”, courtesy of the Global Arts Foundation and La Biennale Di Venezia, sponsored by Aria Gallery, C24, and Peace River Botanical and Sculpture Garden.  Click here.

For anyone visiting NOLA, stop by and say hi to Feuerman’s Kendall Island and Yaima and the Ball brought to you by Sculpture for New Orleans. Perched on pedestals above Poydras Corridor, these two beauties will reside in the Big Easy through the Summer of 2017.

Antonio Budetta of Aria Gallery, in Italy curated,  “Sport del Bellessere, Personale di Carole Feuerman”, at The Civic Museum of Palazzo Elti of Gemona del Friuli, Italy up through February 21st, 2016.

Feuerman and her swimmers not only made a statement in the US and Italy in 2015, but also in Asia, with museum exhibitions in Hong Kong, Daejeon and Suwon City in South Korea. While she was in Asia, Feuerman was inducted into the International Sculpture Park Foundation. You can read about Carole’s involvement with the Sculpture Park Union here.

 

A Toast to Goddesses and Swimmers at Miami Art Week

Come winter people from around the world find themselves escaping the chilly weather in favor of a warm tropical beach. For art lovers there is no better place to be than Miami the first week of December. From starlets and professional athletes to renowned artists, and high-class businessmen there is no telling whom you might bump into over a glass of champagne. The city transforms into an art mecca, becoming a pilgrimage for every contemporary art collector. With over 20 art fairs and 120 events, visitors are presented with the best contemporary art in the world in a Gatsby-esque environment.

Sculptor Carole A. Feuerman will be heading down south and presenting her work at several events during the week. At Art Miami www.artmiamifair.com, C24 Gallery www.c24gallery.com will be exhibiting a collection of stainless steel and bronze sculptures, many of them making their first appearance. The collection highlights Carole’s work in bronze and stainless steel as opposed to the traditional resin that many people have come to know her for. Her famous hyper realist sculptures including Next Summer, Miniature Tree, and New York City Slicker will be featured at the fair. Stainless steel Miniature Tree is a quintessential example of Carole’s ability to transform and reinvent steel and bronze. Miniature Tree has a fluidity to her that makes her appear to be liquid. Moreover, her polished exterior reflects the viewer, thereby forming a new perspective for each observer. This interactive media provides a new way of viewing Feuerman’s art. The shiny and enticing booth is not to be missed. If there’s one thing I’ve noticed at art fairs, it’s that if a selfie is feasible in a work, it can’t be missed.

Miniature Tree, 2015, Stainless Steel, 43 x 12 x 9 inches.

Carole’s Painting with Fire series, a body of work she has been developing for over two decades. The process involves melting 6 different types of metals at 2,000 degrees. Once heated she takes the molten hot metal and drips, pours, splatters, and splashes the liquid into a hand made cast; she is literally painting with fire. Venus in Lace, and Dimetre are results of this technique. Each work contains rich textures, organic shapes, and has a remarkable iridescent color. They can be seen first hand at Art Miami! Don’t worry they’re not hot anymore! To learn more about Carole’s technique please visit: https://player.vimeo.com/video/25732964?wmode=opaque&api=1. While the style and subject matter is very different between Carole’s dripped series and hyper realistic swimmers they are united in their concept, and work in tandem to represent Carole’s life work. What do readers think of Carole’s different styles?

The hotel is celebrating their 75th Anniversary by filling the hotel with Carole’s hyper realistic sculptures. Carole’s famous Golden Mean, a towering 16-foot male swimmer poised to dive, will be presented right out front of the hotel. Make sure to peruse the lobby, courtyard, and pool area; you can even wear your swimsuit!

Despite her manic schedule for Miami, Carole wants everyone to feel welcome to spot and approach her throughout the week.  

She will be donning her distinct jacket (pictured above) so that anyone who wishes to introduce themselves and ask questions can do just that.  Keep an eye out for that blue and black print, and don't be shy about saying hello! 

You can also give Carole a shout on Twitter this week- tweet @CaroleFeuerman with a comment or tagged image of her works around the fairs.
