'Yaima And The Ball' to Debut in Miami by Carole Feuerman

by Kelsey Zalimeni

Carole Feuerman's brand new, never before seen piece Yaima and the Ball will be making its debut in Wynwood this December at Miami Project.  Bursting with athletic dynamism, this new addition reflects a bright, energized attitude from Carole.

The figure interacts with the plinth in a symbiotic fashion, both bearing a diagonal silhouette. Such congruence makes this work as much about the medium as its literal narrative theme. 

Miami Project will run from December 2 to 7 in Midtown at the Miami Project Pavilion.  The main entrance is located between NE 34th & NE 36th Streets between NE 1st Avenue (Midtown Blvd.) and Buena Vista Blvd.

This exciting new piece will be on view at Jim Kempner Fine Art, Booth 113 for the duration of the fair. Don't miss it!

by Kelsey Zalimeni

Carole Feuerman's painted resin swimmer 'Balance' is currently on display at Cavalier Gallery in Greenwich, Connecticut.  Titled 'Contemporary Realism,' this exhibition runs the gamut of current artists working in the photo- and hyperreal realm of representation.

Monumental Shower by Carole Feuerman

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.

Breakthrough by Carole Feuerman

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.

Tomor and Matteo by Carole Feuerman

by Kelsey Zalimeni

An encounter with 'Tomor and Matteo' epitomizes the term phenomenological experience. The digital sculpture installation requires the viewer to be active and aware of their own body in the space. Feuerman's choice to install the piece on the floor hearkens to a similar mechanism made famous by minimalist sculptor Carl Andre, forcing the audience to orient themselves about the piece as it occupies the ground they walk on.

This piece was part of Carole's 2010 El Paso Museum retrospective exhibition, aptly titled 'Earth Water Air Fire.'  The installation was certainly a highlight of the show, inhabiting its own viewing room complete with a 40-foot high digital projector suspended from the ceiling. The following video features a tour of the El Paso exhibition:


The depicted scene comes from a common, everyday experience, yet there is something ritualistic about the interaction.  Perhaps the very nature of sharing (the pool, the beach ball, a glance) causes the piece to shine as sacred.  This video below offers a glimpse of the installation in depth.
