Carole A. Feuerman brings art to life with solo exhibition
BETWEEN THE DROPS at ART OF THE WORLD GALLERY
HOUSTON, TX (March 2019) – Art of the World Gallery is pleased to present Between the Drops, an exhibition of works by acclaimed New York artist Carole A. Feuerman. New works, made especially for this exhibition, on view from March 22 through May 18, 2019.
Between the Drops is a comprehensive show includes a variety of styles and materials: resin and bronze, painted and monochromatic, and video. The realism in Carole Feuerman’s art stems from her show that celebrates the joie de vivre and the desire to portray emotional and physical states of being, ranging from peacefulness to energetic vigor. Feuerman states, “I make my sculptures about people who are comfortable in their own skin. I promote the idea of total health, with a sound mind in a sound body. This is one of the defining aspects of my realistic style. Forty years ago, showing healthy, intelligent women was a radical departure in contemporary art. Now it is a widely accepted ideal, yet most contemporary artists don’t explore this topic—at least not in figurative art. Though my art is varied and has changed over the years, my love for making it continues to grow.”
Carole A. Feuerman is an American artist and sculptor working in Hyperrealism, a genre that began in the 1970s in relation to photorealist painting that portrays her sculptures precisely. Born in 1945, she is one of the three pioneers that started the movement portraying her subjects precisely. Through her sculptures, she creates visual manifestations of strength, survival, and balance. Dubbed “the reigning doyenne of hyperrealism” by art historian John T. Spike, Feuerman has solidified her place in art history.
Feuerman exhibits in private and public collections, sculpture parks, galleries, and museums worldwide. She has been included in selected exhibitions at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery; the State Hermitage Museum; the Venice Biennale; and Palazzo Strozzi. Her works are often integrated with architecture and landscaping in the creation or renovation of buildings and parks. She has had seven solo museum exhibitions. Four hardcover catalogue raisonné’s have been published about her work.
Her works are owned by public, private, and corporate collections, including Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ; the El Paso Museum of Art, El Paso, Texas; the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, FL; and Art-St-Urban Foundation, Lucerne, Switzerland. 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.
