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).

Carole's Picks: Linda Cole

by Kelsey Zalimeni

It is time yet again for a new edition in the Carole's Picks series. This month features established artist and Michigan native Linda Cole. Cole has spent time in Ann Arbor, New York, and London experimenting with textiles and design.  Over the years she developed a distinctive style which brought material and space into play with one another.  Her works are ethereal and imaginative, with a sound balance struck through structure and order.

Cole works in large scale multimedia, often displayed as public installations.  Audiences are asked to engage with the pieces spatially, as they occupy a large portion of the display location.  One also considers the relation of parts to a whole in this encounter, admiring the small components of a work like 'Rain' and their role in the overall composition.

Cole continues to create these marvelous installations, exhibiting in cities all over the country and abroad.  For more information on this artist, visit her website HERE.

Breakthrough

by Kelsey Zalimeni

In today's manic, rushing society, humans have grown desensitized to stimuli, caring only to speed through their busy day and make it home at the end. Carole Feuerman's 'Nude Coming Through 14th Street'  asks how long it will take for New Yorkers to notice a nude woman coming through the wall of 14th Street's subway station at rush hour. This piece is an attempt to slow people down- to not only see, but to really look

Defying the laws of physics and social convention, this figure makes new the concept of individuality in total.  The woman is neither concerned with her nudity nor the gawking of passersby, literally planting herself in a private space as her front leads into the public.  An allusion to the fabled 'glass ceiling' can also be interpreted, as Carole uses the piece to illustrate her progressive mentality as a contemporary female artist.

A New Dimension

by Kelsey Zalimeni

Carole Feuerman's current work incorporates digital interactive moving heat sensitive media and sound with her painted resin swimmers. This has taken her art to an entirely different level.  By projecting video and combining multi media, Carole has managed to turn what would normally be a mere viewing of the piece into a wholly immersive and interactive experience.

The projection not only alters the look of the sculpture, but actually swallows it whole to make it part of the video. Inseparable, the sculpture and video unite on a plane just between their respective medium categories.

This hybrid breed of artwork also serves to convert the exhibition space.  What would normally be regarded as 'the room in which the sculpture resides' is now an environment which takes you to a new dimension.  The surrounding darkness disallows the viewer's effort to locate themselves in the space; the artwork as your focal point becomes the only locus available for spatial relation.
