Carole A. Feuerman is recognized as one of the world’s most renowned, influential, and popular hyperrealist sculptors.  Her prolific career spans four decades in which she has pioneered new approaches to sculpture. 

In May, the Double Diver, Feuerman's monumental sculpture towering 36 feet in the air, was installed at NetApp’s headquarters and gifted to the city of Sunnyvale, California. 

Using the innovative technique of dripping molten bronze and utilizing the ability to make 4,800 pounds of bronze balance on six-inch bronze wrists, she pushed the boundaries of both art and physics; creating a sculpture that is truly the first of its kind. 


 

Feuerman is currently exhibiting in Personal Structures, Time Space Existence, Global Art Affairs Foundation, which is part of this year's 2015 Venice Biennale in Italy.

Her solo exhibition, Art in Harbour City, Hong Kong just closed and the sculptures are now going to be touring Asia. They will be shown next at the Daejeon Museum of Art in Daejeon, South Korea in a hyperrealism exhibition opening on Sept 4th. After that they will be exhibited at a museum in the capital city of Seoul.

Carole's Picks: Bill Fitzgibbons


by Kelsey Zalimeni

Carole's monthly artist selection for September is Bill Fitzgibbons. The sculptor has exhibited in numerous locations across the globe, gaining notoriety for his large-scale public installations which explore light, color, and their combined effect upon space.

Recently, Fitzgibbons created a social sculpture art performance called 'Passages' in March 2014.  The piece was originally performed at the International Museum of Art and Science in McAllen, Texas.  It was also restaged on a section of the Brownsville, Texas border (as seen in the featured video below).

Monumental Shower

by Kelsey Zalimeni

Carole Feuerman's 'Monumental Shower' pulls the private and public into tension.  An intimate moment such as this is captured in hyperrealistic fashion, blown up in scale and displayed for all to see. Is the bather proud in her exposure? Unaware of her voyeurs? In either case, 'Monumental Shower' succeeds to intrigue and entice.

The figure's natural, luxurious pose is saturated with enjoyment.  Warm drops of shower water cascade down the body.  Her confidence and graceful posture exude two pillars of Feuerman's work, making the piece another great gesture toward the artist's ideals.

Looking Back

by Kelsey Zalimeni

Carole Feuerman's 1997 sculpture 'Paradise' shows the artist breaking into stylistic stride.  The piece contains all classic Feuerman characteristics, including lifelike water droplets, flotation device, and hyperreal swimmer.  This particular sculpture bears a couple unique traits that more current Feuermans don't, such as a full head of hair sans swimcap and an open, expressive mouth.

When considering this piece, one is offered a glimpse of an earlier period within Carole's illustrious career.  Drawing comparisons between 'Paradise' and 'Serena' for example, yields parallels in pose and theme but also contrast in execution.

Advances in both technology and Carole's own artistic process have streamlined her works over the years, as the artist seemingly never stops improving in technique and ambition. With such an exponential rate of growth, the future possiblities for new works are limitless- and she isn't slowing down anytime soon.
