Carole FEUERMAN
  • biography
“Carole A. Feuerman is acknowledged, alongside Duane Hanson and John D'Andrea, as one of the three major American hyperrealist sculptors that started the movement in the 1970’s.

Feuerman’s career spans over five decades and four continents. Through her sculptures, she creates visual manifestations of the stories she wants to tell, of strength, survival, and balance. 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. Her work was included in An American Odyssey 1945-1980 with the most prominent artists of the American Post-WWII era. A comprehensive one-person show in 2005 was held at the QCC Art Museum/CUNY titled Resin to Bronze Topographies. It was followed by the installation of her work at the Grounds for Sculpture in New Jersey. Feuerman has had solo museum retrospectives at the El Paso Museum in Texas, the Huan Tai Hu Museum of Jiangsu Province in China, the Amerillo Art Museum, the Tampa Museum, the Southern Allegheny Museum, QCC, CUNY Museum, and the Queens Museum of Art. In 2009, she exhibited her sculpture “Moran” in the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence in a show called Art of Illusions, Masterpieces of Tromp L’oeil from Antiquity to the Present. In 2013, her sculpture, “The General’s Daughter” was exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC. Her sculpture “Monumental Quan” was exhibited in the Frederik Meijer Sculpture Garden in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 2007, Feuerman had a solo exhibition in Venice called Bellezza E Beressaze: By the Sea, in the Venice Biennale, curated by John T. Spike, featuring her monumental sculpture “Survival of Serena” In 2008, ‘“Survival of Serena” was chosen ‘Best in The Show’ at the Beijing Biennale and was exhibited at the National Museum of China. “The Golden Mean” debuted in 2017 at her solo show in Giardini Marinaressa for Personal Structures – Open Borders at the Venice Biennale. In 2013, “Survival of Serena” was chosen by New York City Department of Parks & Recreation for exhibition in Soho, New York and again in 2017 it was exhibited in Central Park for their celebration of 50 Years of Public Art in NYC Parks. In 2018, Feuerman had a solo outdoor exhibition in Knokke-Heist, Belgium. In 2019-2020, she had nine monumental sculptures on the Champs- Élysées and Avenue George V. Her iconic sculptures, “Catalina”and “The General’s Daughter”, are traveling in a group show titled 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Sculpture. The show originated in 2016 at Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao, Spain and then traveled to the Academia de Bellas Artes in Madrid, to the Marco Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Monterrey, to Denmark’s Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Art in Sydney, the Kunsthal Tübingen in Germany, the Heydar Aliyev in Azerbaijan, The National Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan and La Boverie, Liège, Belgium, and is currently at the Osthaus Museum Hagen in Museumsplatz 1, 58095 Hagen, Germany. My sculpture “The Golden Mean” is owned by the City of Peekskill, New York and installed in Riverfront Green Park. Her monumental “Double Diver”, spiraling 36 feet in the air, is owned by the City of Sunnyvale, California. Her art is included in the collections of the President and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Frederic R. Weisman Art Foundation, Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Michael Gorbachev Art Foundation, The State Hermitage, the Metropolitan Museum and the Malcolm Forbes Magazine Collection. Feuerman's selected awards include Best in Show at the Third International Beijing Art Biennale, CN, the 2001 Lorenzo De Magnifico Award for the Biennale Internazionale: Dell'Arte Contemporanea in Florence, Italy, The Prize of Honor in 2002 for the Ausstellungszentrum Heft in Huttenberg, Austria, and the Medici Prize awarded by the City of Florence.

Selected critical press include: "In the Swim: Carole A. Feuerman's Sculptures Stay in Shape," by John T. Spike, May 2005, Art & Antiques Magazine, in 2012 in the New York Times in an article by Susan Hodara, “Hudson- Inspired Art, Popping Up All Over”, the Forward in 2017 by Michael Kramer, “In Trumps America, It’s Hard To Be a Realist”, and “How China Gave Sculpture’s Queen of Hyperrealism Carole A. Feuerman One of her First Breaks” in the South Morning Post by Kavita Daswani.

There are five monographs written about her work. Her first swimmer sculpture, “Catalina” is included in A History of Western Art, published by Harry N. Abrams, and written by Anthony Mason and John T. Spike. You can see her work in museums, as well as private and public collections worldwide. Feuerman is married with three children and six grandchildren. She lives and works in New York City.” Stephen Foster, Ph.D., Art Historian
