Carole Feuerman, born in 1945, is an American sculptor of international renown.
Alongside Duane Hanson and John D’Andrea, she is one of the three artists credited with the emergence of the Hyperrealist sculptural movement in the late 1970s.
Particularly inspired by the world of swimming, she enjoys creating elegant, more-than-realistic figures of swimmers.
By combining classic sculptural materials such as steel, bronze and resin with more conventional supports, Carole Feuerman sculpts hybrid works from which emanate complex energies that provoke strong emotions in her audience…
The artist imbues her works with personality, sensuality and passion: while their outward appearance is often one of peaceful beauty, their faces conceal a deeper sense of heroism, triumph and liberation.
The presence of detail, relief and paint, right down to the droplets of water, give humanity to her creations.
