BAFA LONDON PRESENTS CAROLE FEUERMAN, RENOWNED HYPERREALIST SCULPTOR
This month, BAFA London will welcome celebrated American artist Carole Feuerman to London. Feuerman is one of the world’s foremost hyperrealist sculptors, with a prolific career behind her spanning over four decades and four continents. Through her sculptures, she creates visual manifestations of the stories she wants to tell; of strength, survival and balance. Feuerman has produced a rich body of work both in the studio and the public realm.
“My work inspires the viewer to look closely at what stands before them, I want the viewer to complete the story to reflect and feel touched. I ask for the interaction between myself, as the storyteller and the viewer. My story is always personal, centred on the human body.” - Carole Feuerman
Carole Feuerman is renowned for her collection of show-stopping, colourful and monumental sculptures of female swimmers, titled ‘Strength, Survival & Balance’. These impressive sculptures reflect her fascination with the feminine form and recurring themes of water and swimming. Accentuating the appearance of water drops on skin, Feuerman’s contemplative bathers embody the artist’s intimate take on the hyperrealist style.
Feuerman recently spoke at the International Women’s Forum’s annual World Leadership Conference in the USA. Her hyperrealistic works are exhibited in both private and public collections, appearing at prominent venues including the Venice Biennale, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, The State Hermitage, The National Museum of China and the Piazza della Repubblica in Florence.
