Carole A. Feuerman (American, b.1945) began sculpting in the 1970s, and established herself as one of America’s most acclaimed Hyper-Realists. Known for her sensuous themes of swimmers and bathers, complete with translucent water drops, her work takes the concept of art imitating life to a new level. Executed in painted resin with tactile flesh and meticulous detail, they display both contemporary and classical influences. Over the past decade, she has also developed a highly original technique of sculpting with molten metal, creating multi-layered, organic bronzes in the spirit of Action Painting.

Feuerman has exhibited in museums and galleries all over the world, from the 2008 Olympic Fine Arts Exhibition to biennales in Venice, Florence, Beijing, and Austria. Her works are in many prestigious collections around the world, including in the collection of President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Dr. Henry Kissinger, The Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, The Malcolm Forbes Magazine Collection, and President Mihail S. Gorbachov Foundation. Her sculptures have also been exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The State Hermitage Museum, among many other institutions.
