Realist sculptor Carole A. Feuerman's human-figure sculptures express a refreshing perspective on the mundane but intensely personal activities of modern life. Her powers of observation and versatility find unique expression through various materials that include marble, bronze, vinyl, and painted resins, while she incorporates both ancient and contemporary methods in the creation of her works. Swimmers: By Carole A. Feuerman is a shimmering glimpse at transitory, contemplative moments in time, often captured in a veil of clear resin that replicates tumbling water droplets. In this new collection of Feuerman's work, her printwork and treatment of the figure on paper is also explored for the first time. In his astute and insightful essay, John Yau describes Feuerman's exquisitely rendered subjects as being "caught in a moment of transition that radiates an intense eroticism." Her figures seem capable of thought, evoking an inward life that invites our speculation while revealing a mysterious provocative chasm between the figures and the viewer. Feuerman's sculpture and prints provide us with a fleeting glimpse into private and isolated environments - women stepping out of the shower, in the rain, or swimming - that suggest a meditative bliss. Feuerman museum retrospectives have included exhibitions at The State Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia; The Palazzo Strozzi Foundation in Florence, Italy; and the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, among others. Her work is featured in public, private, and corporate collections, including Grounds for Sculpture, Trenton, NJ; the El Paso Museum of Art, El Paso, Texas; the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, FL; and art-st-urban, Lucerne, Switzerland. Her large-scale Olympic Swimmer was featured in the Olympic Fine Arts exhibition at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing.
