Carole A. Feuerman is recognized as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture. Together with Hanson and De Andrea, Feuerman is one of the three artists that started the Hyperrealism movement in the late seventies by making sculptures portraying their models in a life-like manner. Dubbed ‘the reigning doyenne of super-realism’ by art historian John T. Spike, Feuerman has solidified her place in art history.
Feuerman’s prolific career spans over four decades and four continents. Through her sculptures, she creates visual manifestations of the stories she wants to tell; of strength, survival, balance. Feuerman has produced a rich body of work in the studio and the public realm. By combining conventional sculptural materials of steel, bronze, and resin, with more unconventional media like water, sound, and video, she creates hybrid works of intricate energy and psychology. She has taught, lectured, and given workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, Columbia University, and Grounds for Sculpture. In 2011, she founded the Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture Foundation. She continues her focus on public outdoor sculptures, working primarily in bronze.
There are four full-color monographs written about her work: Carole Feuerman Sculpture, both editions published by Hudson Hills Press; La Scultura incontra la realtà, available in multiple languages; and Swimmers, published by The Artist Book Foundation. ‘Grande Catalina,' her monumental sculpture, is included in A History of Western Art, published by Harry N. Abrams, and written by Anthony Mason and John T. Spike.
