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.

 

Miami Art Week opens with a bang, Art Basel to follow by Carole Feuerman

Size may not be what matters most in contemporary art, but when it comes to the 2015 edition of Miami’s Art Week, the sprawling pageant that for six days every December engulfs the Beach, Midtown and Wynwood in a mind-boggling tumult of art gazing and acquisition, not to mention partying and rubber-necking, it matters quite a bit.

Big art, big ideas, big crowds and big price tags were everywhere in abundant evidence on Tuesday, the traditional starting bell for the scads of satellite fairs and ancillary events that orbit around the official Big Show, Art Basel Miami Beach, which won’t open until Wednesday morning to an invitation-only crowd.

But big did not need to wait for Wednesday. Tuesday’s openings by themselves offered an exhaustive, and exhausting, panoply of what’s hot and cool in the contemporary art market, a range of art that ran from the sublime to the, perhaps, ridiculous.

In the sculpture garden in front of the Art Miami tent, the first mate of the week’s art fairs, the VIP swarm — 11,000 were invited, and most seemed to show up — was greeted by a 16-foot bronze spiral by American Gino Miles. Inside, they found a piece by Briton Damien Hirst, dead butterflies in a ring six feet around, for $950,000, and more blue-chip works than ever, including a massive, nine-foot-plus kinetic sculpture by Alexander Calder, for $12.8 million.

Nearby, on the edge of Midtown Miami, stood an illuminated 50-foot-tall dandelion sculpture by Robert James Buchholz installed just for the week. A couple of blocks north, Snarkitecture’s four curling, 30-foot-long “candy cane” sculptures in fiberglass and foam — 75 times longer than an actual candy cane, the artists proudly note — occupy a chunk of the reborn Design District’s Palm Plaza for the holidays.

Just to the west, at a Wynwood Walls expanded with a new garden and new graffiti-style murals, some 200 guests, including street artists from Latin America and Spain, gathered for what Jessica Goldman, daughter of the project's founder, the late Tony Goldman, called “a big family dinner.” Four new murals, including one of enormous floating Greek Gods, by Spanish artists Piki & Avo, and another of giant hands, by German artist Case, hovered around them.

Down the block, art dealer Gary Nader hosted dignitaries to his Wynwood gallery to celebrate his soon-to-be Latin American art museum.

“This means that Miami will be taken to a whole new level that we’ve never experienced,’’ said Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado.

Not far from there, at Miami Dade College’s downtown campus, performers swam in a 4,500-gallon tank installed in a plaza, undertaking mundane daily activities underwater — a foreshadowing of life in the coming Holocene era, after climate change and sea-level rise have conquered the world, courtesy of director and media artist Lars Jan.

There were some big stars in attendance —Sylvester Stallone swung through the VIP opening at Design Miami, little sister to the Basel fair, while Basel frequenter Leo DiCaprio got a private preview at Art Miami, his first time there. Also in attendance: Developer Jorge Perez. He stopped in at the Pinta Miami fair, in Wynwood, which features Latin American art — including an installation by Carlos Martiel that consists of one live naked man, lying motionless at the base of a flagpole, his neck bolted to the ground with a metal collar. The Mexican flag initially flying atop the pole was later changed to a Costa Rican flag, and will be changed continuously throughout the exhibit.

An elderly woman gave the naked man a thumbs-up, but he just blinked.

The naked man wasn’t for sale, but plenty of other art was. Despite economic softening in Latin America, a principal source of art collectors for Miami’s fairs, and turmoil over migrants in Europe, Art Miami was mobbed —fair director Nick Korniloff said the number of requests for VIP credentials this year exceeded 2014’s, and he expects to surmount last year’s total visitor count of 82,500.

Some art was already selling big. At Pinta Miami, Bogota gallerist Luis Angel Parra said he sold two sculptures by Colombian Hugo Zapata for $50,000 each. And to judge from asking prices, gallerists came to Miami with big expectations. At Art Miami, an Andy Warhol flowers painting was going for $6.5 million, and a rare 1980s collaboration between Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat for $3.4 million. An unusual 1960s painting by Alma Thomas that graced the cover of her 1972 solo show catalogue at the Whitney Museum, the first African American female artist to be featured there, was going for $950,000.

By Sunday, many fairgoers may be ready for the perfect gift, courtesy of Paris-based Galerie Kreo, at Design Miami -- the chance for a soothing bath in a boat. Studio Wieki Somers created the “Bathboat” tub, with a white ribbed interior and honey-colored outer shell that resembles one of those highly prized handmade boats. Only 30 were made, plus one prototype, from oak and red cedar.

Their scale may not be monumental, but the price of a soak will be. They sell for $50,000 each.

A Toast to Goddesses and Swimmers at Miami Art Week by Carole Feuerman

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?

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!
