Carole A. Feuerman on INSIDER

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!

Feuerman and Her Swimmers are the Ultimate Globetrotters - Hong Kong! South Korea! Germany! Italy! Florida! New York! Louisiana! California!

Feuerman’s very busy calendar for 2016 and 2017 follows on the coattails of very successful 2015 season, where Feuerman’s painted bronzes filled the landmark National Hotel in South Beach during Art Basel Week. Described in The Observer’s “Winners and, um, Not Winners, of Art Basel Miami Beach 2015”, Feuerman’s Solo Exhibition, featuring the iconic Survival of Serena and The Golden Mean, was touted as being on the Bucket List of shows not to miss during the week. Rubbing elbows with celebrities, reporters, collectors, and gallerists, Feuerman’s work could also be seen at the art behemoth that is Art Miami, providing a hyperreal focal point amongst much of the conceptual work featured. And if you happen to be in Palm Beach Florida, a must stop would be Gallery Biba on Worth Avenue.

After  Feuerman's showings at the star studded Art Basel and Art Miami Fairs, and after the crowds and tourists that had flocked to the "Magic City" for Art Week returned home, Feuerman's work made the move to her next solo show at Markowicz Fine Art, in the Miami Design District. The opening was fun filled, with a Meet and Greet with Feuerman signing books and a special edition print as she celebrated at the opening. The show will be up through the end of the month. Debuting were her newest works, The Dancer and Dancing Hoop, along with her newest painted bronzes.

Never one to slow down, Feuerman has forged ahead, with multiple shows for 2016 and 2017.  Her sculpture Christina will soon make an appearance at the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, February 11th with Timothy Yarger Fine Art.  She also has 2 Solo Shows in 2016, one at the Deland Museum of Art in Florida, on April 15th and the other in New York City at C24 Gallery, May 6th.  Feuerman will return to Europe, exhibiting in “Die Welt als Bühne | The World is a Stage”, at Haus Beda in Bitburg, Germany on April, 24th.  She will also solidify her position as a permanent fixture at the next Venice Biennale with a solo show in the park on the Grand Canal, called “Dancing on the Water”, courtesy of the Global Arts Foundation and La Biennale Di Venezia, sponsored by Aria Gallery, C24, and Peace River Botanical and Sculpture Garden.  Click here.

For anyone visiting NOLA, stop by and say hi to Feuerman’s Kendall Island and Yaima and the Ball brought to you by Sculpture for New Orleans. Perched on pedestals above Poydras Corridor, these two beauties will reside in the Big Easy through the Summer of 2017.

Frankfurt Welcomes Feuerman With Solo Exhibition At Galerie Hübner & Hübner

Germany welcomes Carole Feuerman this fall with a solo exhibition at Galerie Hübner & Hübner. Carole’s exhibition will open October 9, 2015 and run through November 11, 2015. Galerie Hübner & Hübner exhibits international and national artists, and resides in the Frankfurt, Rhein Main region. Grueneburgweg 71 D -60323 Frankfurt / Main
General's Twin, 2009. Oil on Resin. 24 x 15 x 8 in.
Carole Feuerman has been a pioneer in the hyper-realist art movement since its inception in the 1960s and has been perfecting the movement ever since. Feuerman’s solo exhibition provides viewers the opportunity to see Carole’s progression into one of the most influential figures in the hyperrealist movement. The exhibition chronicles Carole’s career, presenting sculptures from her first ever solo exhibition to the present day. For example, Red Tie (1965) a sculpture from Carole’s solo exhibition in Fort Worth, Texas called Rated X, juxtaposes the sweet General’s Twin (2009), featuring a young girl swimmer blossoming into adolescence.

Beach With Goggles, 2011. Oil on Resin. 18 x 12 x 7 in.

Beach With Goggles (2011) is another youthful swimmer featured in the show. This rosy cheeked girl in a poka-dot suit looks to be relaxing after a long swim. Swimmers have been a main theme throughout Feuerman’s career, therefore, they are prominently represented within the exhibition. Due to the craftsmanship and hyper-realist quality of every sculpture one innately strives to apply a narrative or personality to each piece. For example, one can easily imagine Kendall Island (2014) in her lustrous black cap and sleek crisscross suit resting right after diving practice.

Even tabletop pieces are quite easy to envision as living figures. A peaceful Miniature Serena (2013) floats along with her inner-tube, as she rests on a tabletop. Meanwhile, Miniature Quan (2013)  precariously balances on a sphere creating a dichotomy between the relaxed swimmer and the pressure being applied to the sphere. Furthermore, it is a representation of the Buddhist goddess Quan and her burden of protecting the world. Their is a feeling of power, presence, and strength reflected in the emotion and youthful quality in each piece, a sense that frequently flickers and fades with age. Malibu (2012) a young swimmer featured in the exhibit can easily be seen effortlessly ‘breaking through’ the water. Where do readers imagine Carole’s sculptures?

Swimmer Sculpture Spotted in Chelsea

As a slew of gallery openings ensued in Chelsea last week I found myself caught in a cold and gloomy downpour. While walking briskly down 10th Avenue through the pouring rain I spotted Miniature Balance illuminated in the window of Jim Kempner Fine Art. Unaffected by the torrential rain in her sleek black swimsuit and glistening Swarovski crystal cap, she effortlessly caught the eye of many passersby’s. Looking serene and tranquil Miniature Balance acted as a ray of sunshine and warmth on a dreary night. With closed eyes and relaxed features Miniature Balance became a comfort and reminder that a little water never hurt anyone, even when caught in the rain sans umbrella.

While viewing Miniature Balance, I couldn’t help but think how life-like she seemed to me. It is very easy to catch yourself believing Carole’s sculptures are people at first glance, which is a result of the level of craftsmanship within every artwork. Each sculpture is meticulously rendered with every vein, eyelash, and water drop expertly placed. In many instances I have found myself having to do a double take when passing one of Carole’s swimmer’s. Additionally, they are always very inviting, enticing you to come closer and examine the artistry and detail within every piece. Miniature Balance piqued my interest, making me want to know the inspiration, thought process, and technique behind the piece. I am wondering what questions or thoughts readers have when viewing Miniature Balance?

Oil on Resin. 18 x 16 x 9 inches.
With fall rapidly approaching Carole Feuerman’s swimmer’s become welcomed reminders of hot weather and summer fun. If you desire a few last remnants of summer, be sure to visit Carole’s show in the Hamptons at Nicole Ripka Gallery (760 Montauk Hwy Water Mill, New York 11976) through October 19th, 2015.
