Feuerman's Book 'Swimmers' Now Available For Pre-Order

by Kelsey Zalimeni

At long last, Carole Feuerman's book Swimmers is set to finally hit the shelves.  John Yau of the Artist Book Foundation contributes an insightful, thorough investigation of Feuerman's works in an exquisite essay. Below is a small excerpt:

Feuerman’s women are the most recent descendants of Botticelli’s painting, The Birth of Venus.  In counterpoint to Venus’s modesty, these women, with the exception of the one titled Sunburn, savor their own bodies. At home in their skin, their erotic joy is both palpable and private. However much viewers may wish to peer or pry – to learn what they are thinking – the world they inhabit excludes us.
