Career

Carole Feuerman is an American artist working in hyperrealism, a movement that began in the 1970's in relation to photorealist painting. She utilizes a variety of mediums including resin, marble, and bronze. She has been included in exhibitions at the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, the Venice Biennale, and Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, Italy.

Public artIn 2003, Feuerman was commissioned by artist Seward Johnson and the Sculpture Foundation to create a one of a kind painted bronze sculpture installation for the permanent collection of Grounds for Sculpture. On May 20, 2012, Feuerman unveiled her monumental sculpture "Survival of Serena" in painted bronze with New York City's Department of Parks and Recreation. The new "Survival of Serena" is the first of a series of painted bronze sculptures by the artist designed specifically for outdoor placement.

The bronze sculpture was installed in Petrosino Square through September before traveling to the Boca Raton Beach Resort in Florida, where it is currently on view. From September 19, 2012 through January 6, 2013, Feuerman's work "Quan", in painted bronze and polished stainless steel, was featured at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan as part of the group show entitled "Body Double: The Figure in Contemporary Sculpture". A 16-foot bronze diver entitled "The Golden Mean" at Riverfront Green Park with Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in Peekskill, New York was unveiled on September 29, 2012, Feuerman's largest work to date.

A video documentary on the five-year creation of the work has been posted online. In 2013, The City of Peekskill announced the acquisition of the sculpture as a permanent monument to the town. A second diver was created for her spring 2013 solo exhibition at Jim Kempner Fine Art also titled "The Golden Mean" where it is on display in the outdoor sculpture garden through the summer and then moved to an 8 piece outdoor sculpture exhibition at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City.

The monumental model used to create the bronze was installed in the 2013 Venice Biennale. On May 30, 2014, NetApp unveiled a new sculpture by Carole A. Feuerman titled 'Double Diver' during a ceremony at the Sunnyvale headquarters. 'Double Diver' is 2½ tons of bronze and steel balancing on two 6-inch wrists.

In 2015, Feuerman had solo exhibitions in Florence, Hong Kong, Frankfurt. Korea, and New York, Miami and Chicago. She is part of a group show entitled Love at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art.

Two of her sculptures, DurgaMa and Leda and the Swan, are included in the 2015 Venice Biennale at Palazzo Mora.
