Carole Feuerman, 1945 | Hyperrealist sculptor

Carole A. Feuerman is recognized as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealistic sculpture🎨.
Together with Duane Hanson and John 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 decides to tell: of strength, survival, balance.
She seeks to connect with her viewers on an intuitive level, evoking emotion and engagement. It is often the viewer’s participation, or the object/viewer relationship, that completes her stories. She 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.
Feuerman exhibits in private and public collections, sculpture parks, galleries, and museums worldwide. Her works are often integrated with architecture and landscaping in the creation or renovation of buildings and sites.
An important example is her monumental ‘Double Diver’ spiraling 36 feet in the air, and permanently sited in Silicon Valley, owned by the City of Sunnyvale, California.
Survival of Serena’ has been exhibited by New York City Department of Parks and Recreation and was also recently chosen to be installed in Central Park for their celebration 'It's Happening! 50 Years of Public Art in NYC Parks'.






Currently, it is being exhibited publicly in the Piazzetta in Capri, Italy. ‘Monumental Quan’ was first exhibited in the Frederik Meijer Sculpture Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan, next in the Venice Biennale and is current on the beach in Knokke, Belgium.
One of Feuerman’s most recognizable pieces, ‘The Golden Mean’, is owned by the City of Peekskill, NY, and can be seen in Riverfront Green Park overlooking the Hudson River.
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.
Her first swimmer, ‘Catalina’, in included in A History of Western Art, published by Harry N. Abrams, and written by Anthony Mason and John T. Spike.





Feuerman has had nine solo museum retrospectives, exhibited extensively worldwide, and is included in the permanent collections of 19 museums.
In Italy, she exhibited in Palazzo Grazie in the Piazza della Repubblica in Florence, the Teatro Romano e Museo Civico in Fiesole, and the Musei di Rimini. In China, she has had solo shows in Hong Kong, the National Museum of China and Huan Tai Hu Museum in the Jiangsu province.
She has exhibited in Korea at the Clayarch Gimhae Museum, Daejeon Museum, and Suwon Museum. In Germany, she has exhibited at the Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden, the Contemporary Art Museum in Aachen, and in Kassel during Documenta 14 (2017).
In Spain, she exhibited at Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao and the Academia de Bellas Artes de Madrid.
In Mexico, she has exhibited at Marco Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey, and Denmark at the Arken Museum of Modern Art.





In 2017, the European Cultural Centre organized a solo show for her in Giardini Marineressa entitled Personal Structures - Open Borders, one of many exhibitions surrounding the Venice Biennale, where Feuerman has had a presence four times.
Her works were also exhibited at Venissa in Burano, Palazzo Mora, Palazzo Bembo, and the San Clemente Palace.
Feuerman was one of the keynote speakers at the International Women’s Forum Conference of world leaders in Houston. She Spoke about her ideas of artists remaking the world.
2018 started with her sculpture, "Monumental DurgaMa" being featured at INTO ACTION in Los Angeles, an art and music celebration of community power and cultural resistance.  Feuerman's newest monumental sculpture "Strength" is on exhibit outside of the National Hotel in Miami, Florida.



Her Sculpture called the “The General’s Daughter” has traveled to five museums in a show called Almost Alive: Hyperrealistic Sculpture from 21-07-2018 – 21-10-2018.

Her selected collectors include the Emperor of Japan, President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Norman Brahman, the Caldic Collection, Mark Parker of NIKE, and Malcolm Forbes.
