Inspiration and Balance by Carole Feuerman

Balance, Resin & Oil, by Carole Feuerman

Balance, Resin & Oil, by Carole Feuerman

Almost 30 years ago I had a great encounter. My curiosity made me stumble into the ancient science of astrology, the universal language of time. The powers of the heavens and the majestic lineage of the stars made me jump into the most fantastic journey’s I have ever traveled in my life.

As I began to learn more about the movements of celestial bodies and their influence on our planet, the relationship between the mythology of transformation and the duality between form and shape became one of my artistic obsessions. The influence of these elements on our cosmic journey made me embark on a project that took many years to assemble. My goal was to establish a form to materialize the intersection between time and space.

The Hug, Bronze, by Carole Feuerman

Today, after many years of studying astrology and the principles and math behind it, I found reason to believe that everything that exists is a continual expression of universal evolution. Through astrology, I learned that there is a time for everything. For everything there is a time.  Just like in the Holy Scriptures, Astrology is all about a moment in time and the events that develop in those moments. “While doing time on planet Earth, I began to integrate my beliefs with my artistic talent”. Both Astrology and Art demonstrate how archetypal symbols can be applied to the deepest truths.

The ultimate goal is knowing that we are all connected one way or another. From the pairing of the tiny molecules to the ripening of our beings into a natal, there is a mysterious power of the creative that animates our lives from the beginning to the end. Everything we do can be creative if we open up our minds. Reconnecting with our original purpose and coming together as a network of artists, citizens, and before all, humans, we will be able lay the foundations for a better future no matter how uncertain the present is.

Grande Catalina, Resin & Oil, by Carole Feuerman

We can’t forget we are all celestial neurons capable of creating synapses that will lead to actions that can transform reality. Let’s create Art that thrives at each corner of our work to connect the dots, to inspire. A society moves forward, everybody will have the ability to create! That is something worth dreaming of.

The Art World Needs to Start Now: Make Your Voice Heard Through Your Art by Carole Feuerman

Hyper-realistic sculptor Carole A. Feuerman speaking on the importance of an artist's voice.

My desire to participate in this week’s art strike #J20 Art Strike is personal. Ultimately, I can only explain why it’s important for me and hope that preserving American Democracy will be important to you too. The #J20 Art Strike is part of a national day of actions planned for Inauguration Day. Resistance is a daily activity, not an event.

The Art World Can Create Change for the Better During the Trump Years

I am a hyperrealist artist known for my swimmers and bathers. My message has always been balance, peace, survival. I try to touch the world emotionally through my sculptures, to bring the world together. In the past year, I have become a political activist, writing letters, making calls, tweeting and posting on Facebook, and protesting.

I will be going to Washington with the woman’s march this coming Saturday.

My next sculpture will be carrying the message that artists can make a difference.

In the Next Four Years….

Artists and art organizations have the power to work for economic justice while dismantling white supremacy in the arts. A picture is worth a thousand words so do not be afraid to make yourself heard.

Things I'm Thankful for And What I'm Looking Forward to In 2017 by Carole Feuerman

I have much to be thankful for and to look forward to in 2017. I'd like to share them with you.

I'm Thankful for - the gift of health and having all my senses. When I wake up every day and I can breathe, get out of bed, can see,  can walk,  can exercise, can talk, can listen, and can make myself vital, I’m having a great day.

I'm Thankful for- My family. I am so grateful that I have a large family and I get to spend a lot of time with them. When I watch my children and my grandchildren, I'm filled with joy. I am grateful for a loving husband to share my life with and his children and grandchildren. It amazes me to see how many special and loving relatives are in my life.

My Family in New Orleans in 2015

I'm Thankful for- My friends.  I love all my friends but there is a special bond I share with my artists. We see things in a different way and see things that others do not. Many of my artist’s friends were the 'different' ones, not always encouraged by their families so when we get together and share so many things in common it is a great feeling. We understand why we spend all our conscious time creating art, and some of us even spend our unconscious time creating art.

Friends at my opening celebrating at the National Hotel in 2016

I'm Thankful for- my talent. It's a gift when a person knows what they want to do and they can do it and even make a living at it.  When I come home from my art studio full of paint on my clothes in sometimes A smudge here in there on my face and hands my husband says to me I never saw anybody work so long and so many hours. I always say to him that the time I spend in my studio goes so fast. People go to psychiatrists, to ashrams, they smoke pot, they take drugs, they drink, just to feel the way I feel on any given day when I'm working in my art studio.

I'm Thankful For The gift of sensitivity. As a young girl, I was criticized by my family for being too sensitive. Looking back at my life I am grateful for my sensitivity. This gift has enabled me to create art that touches people near and far. I am grateful for the ability to look at the world in my own unique way. As I have developed as an artist, so has my eye and sensitivity to subtle beauty.  I not only notice the obvious beauty like are amazing oceans, but I notice the simple things like water droplets as they come to rest on a person making beautiful patterns.

I'm Thankful for- My assistants and employees. I'm so grateful to have the best studio assistants that I've ever had in my entire career as an artist. I call us the A-Team. Has it been said " no man is an island" Having a great team to work with enables me to be a better artist. It's a joy to work in an environment where not only do I like everyone, but everyone likes everyone else in my studio. The talent in my studio is amazing and because of each person’s special gift and the way we work together, my art is the best I’ve ever made.

Feuerman Studio in 2017 Wishing All of You a Happy Holiday

I'm Thankful for-  my Art Studios and Art Supplies!  I love them and I need them to create. I'm sure, I have more art supplies than I need and yet every time I see things that I want to buy to make my work look even better I get excited. I have two art studios. One is in midtown Manhattan in the area called Nomad and the other is in Jersey City. I love my studios.  It is very important to have a special place to create.

New York Studio with Crates – Getting Ready to Pack

I'm Thankful for - Galleries, Museums, University Galleries, Art Parks, Cities, Foundations and Public Spaces. I'm grateful to have these things in my life. I visit them and appreciate all they offer. I love the exhibits I see, the interesting people I meet there, and the fact that I have a place to show my art where with broad visibility.

I'm Thankful For Collectors, Fans and Sponsors.  I approach my art by sculpting the subjects that I love but when a work of mine connects with someone and they are moved to have it in their home or museum, there is no greater feeling of satisfaction. I am grateful for the people who enjoy my work.

I'm Thankful for - Travel. It may seem odd but I love to fly. I can be in one place in the morning and the next day, halfway across the world. This brightens my life. I get to meet all kinds of people. It gives me food for thought and tools to create. I love to try new foods, look at buildings, understand history by walking through it.  looking it. I love being exposed to other cultures. I love the fact that in a few hours I can visit my children across the country. We are lucky to live in the jet age. When one thinks of travel, they also must think of the Internet. The Internet allows us to travel from one culture to another even faster than a plane. It enables me to have fans in every country, even countries I never heard of. It enables me to see the work of artists that I would never be able to travel to in one lifetime.

Getting Comfortable with A Glass of Champagne Before Takeoff

In one day, it will be 2007. Time goes so fast, and I want to make each precious moment count.

I'm Looking Forward to February 2017, thanks to the invitation of the Chashama Foundation, http://www.chashama.org/about/mission-history, and Anita Durst. I'm invited to have a solo lobby exhibition for the re-opening of the gorgeous glass building at 55 Broadway in New York City. I'll be exhibiting 28 sculptures from all phases of my career and showcasing my newest work state of never been seen before. I'm also making several artworks that will sell for under $500 so the public will be able to afford to collect a genuine Feuerman. The time and date will be announced.

I'm Looking Forward to my bucket list wish coming true** On the 11th and the 12th of May, 2017, I’m having two opening parties for my solo show in the outdoor park on the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.  You can walk from San Marco or take the vaporetto to the Giardini stop to see the show. I have to thank Global Art Affairs Foundation and the city of Venice who have made this show possible. It will be in conjunction with La Biennale di Venezia – 57th International Art Exhibition.

Park in the Star Where my Solo Show Will be Held in Venice, Italy

I'm Looking Forward to the re-opening of the Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City, Michigan. I will be having the inaugural solo exhibition for the newly completed galleries in June, 2017. The Executive Director Gene Jenneman to thank for organizing the show. 

Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City, Michigan

I'm Looking Forward to the fall of 2017 because I’m planning to have a solo show in an Art Museum in Argentina. This is the very first time I've ever exhibited in South America and I hear Argentina is a special place. More details to come when the exhibition is finalized.

I'm Looking Forward to – More than anything else, I pray for our country and the world. My we have peace.

New Media Artform - Thousands leave Post-It Notes as Election Therapy on the NYC Subway Walls Encouraging Shared Thoughts

Before we turn around, it will be December again, but this time it'll be 2017, and I will be showing once again in Miami Art Basel. Since sculptures take so long to make, with each little detail being made from resin or bronze and fabricated to look real, pieces sometimes take up to five years to make. I've already started working on pieces for the future.

As I contemplate what I must look forward to, I am hopeful for my future to be filled with the happiness and my creativity to flourish. I hope to make my best work in 2017.

 

My Summer as Carole Feuerman's Intern by Carole Feuerman

This summer, I graciously accepted an internship at Carole Feuerman's Studio, the Second LSC,  in NYC. Beginning in May, I came into the studio 4 days a week, for about 8 hours a day. Having spent most of my summers life guarding or at camp, the 9-5 lifestyle was completely new to me. I embarked on this journey with no real expectations and an open mind.

As my last day at Carole Feuerman Studio comes to a close I can say that I have learned more here to prepare me for the art world than I have in any classroom (shh don't tell my professors). Carole is a seasoned artists whose knowledge extends far beyond making beautiful work. While interning, I got to work in a variety of jobs including fabrication, inventory, and social media. I am so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to learn directly from her as well as her extremely talented crew. I can not express how wonderful it was to work with such a skillfully diverse team of painters, fabricators, and assistants. It truly awes me how much this team is able to accomplish.

Couldn't leave without taking a few snapchat selfies with my girl, Kendall! Based on image the second image, maybe it's better if we don't swap faces...

 

Upon reflecting on everything I have learned during my time here, here are a few lessons that have stuck out to me:

 

1. Do not be tentative.

This one I definitely still have some work on, but while working in fabrication at the studio I learned how crucial it is to not be cautious. This is a lesson I plan to take back with me to art school and other facets of my life. It is important to take risks and make mistakes. Sometimes its okay to overdo something or even break it, it can always be fixed or done again. Its that extra punch of dark in the drawing or red pigment in the face that makes a finished piece.

2. The art world is always on the move.

One of my jobs while working here was to keep inventory of Carole's art and let me tell you there is A LOT of it. Carole's inventory always needs updating. Everyday we have sculptures being shipped and sold around the world. This studio's ability to manage Carole's extensive registry of art has been so crucial to her international success.

3. Take your inspiration and push boundaries.

Carole can draw inspiration from the most unexpected places. Sometimes its a simple object like a chair or mirror, sometimes its a person she meets, sometimes its a story she reads. Carole's mind is always on the move to do something new and unexpected. In her art, she looks to push boundaries, playing it safe is not her style. Whether its building a 4 ton bronze sculpture on 6 inch wrists that withstands earthquakes, or inventing a brand new technique to paint with bronze, Carole has the passion and drive to make her wildest ideas come to life.

4. Even the best artists need to understand business.

There is no doubt that Carole is an extremely talented artists, but what has impressed me most is her ability to manage her business. At the end of the day you need to sell art to make it, and Carole works with her galleries as a seasoned expert. While interning here I got to witness and partake in the behind scenes work that goes into Carole Feuerman Sculpture. There is so much more to being a fine artist than I had ever expected.

 

I'd like to thank everyone at the studio for all of their generosity in these past 3 months! I look forward to taking everything that I have learned with me as I venture back to St. Louis for my sophomore year at Wash. U! Over and out!

Carole A. Feuerman on INSIDER by Carole Feuerman

On Tuesday, July 26th, the Facebook sensation, INSIDER art posted a video featuring Carole A. Feuerman's hyperrealist sculptures.

In less that 3 days the INSIDER's video about Carole's work has gotten over 1.4 million views!

INSIDER, an online publication covering the latest trends in food, style, travel and culture, has achieved great fame on facebook in the past year. Now, it seems impossible to log onto facebook without coming across at least one of their posts. INSIDER is perhaps best known for its viral 60 seconds videos that cover anything from macaroon ice cream sandwiches in Bangkok to mind-blowing rope bridges in Costa Rica.

Here at Carole A. Feuerman Studios we are particularly excited about this NYC dessert covered by INSIDER:

However, it seems that our fans at INSIDER have left us no bread crumbs! Carole was not contacted by INSIDER, which makes this video a complete surprise to everyone here at Carole A. Feuerman Studios.

Thank you to the staff at INSIDER for recognizing Carole's work. We're not sure who you are, but if you're reading this, please feel free to say hello!
