Poseidon by Carole Feuerman

by Kelsey Zalimeni

Carole Feuerman is now exhibiting her newest bronze sculpture, 'Poseidon', at Jim Kempner Fine Art in Chelsea, NYC.  The piece features a male's head with organic shapes of bronze water drops sliding off the surface. This unique look is achieved through a technique that Feuerman herself developed, called 'Painting with Fire.' The artist first conceived of the idea while traveling by plane in 1998, feeling moved to express the gorgeous natural patterns that she witnessed from her aerial vantage point.

Despite its detachment from the rest of the body, 'Poseidon' conveys a surge of momentum, as the viewer anticipates full emergence from below the surface. The scale of the piece in combination with the pedestal height contributes to its potency.
