Carole Feuerman Presents Solo Exhibition at 57th Venice Biennale
Carole A. Feuerman, American hyperrealist sculptor, will be presented by the Global Arts Foundation, Bel Air Fine Arts, and Venissa at three exclusive exhibitions in Italy during the week of the Venice Biennale from May 9 - 12, 2017.
Carole A. Feuerman is recognized as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture. Together with Hanson and De Andrea, she was one of the three leaders that started the movement in the late seventies by making life-like sculptures that portrayed their models precisely. They are meticulously detailed to create the illusion of a new reality. Dubbed 'the reigning doyenne of super-realism' by art historian John T. Spike, Feuerman has solidified her place in art history.
Through her sculptures, Feuerman, creates visual manifestations of the stories she wants to tell of survival, balance and the struggle achieve. She is best known for her large-scale sculptures of swimmers complete with water drops. "Swimming and water have fascinated me for as long as I can remember, and as a result, have become the essence of my inspiration for my works," says Feuerman. Feuerman has spent the last four decades sculpting monumental, life-sized, and museum-sized works in bronze, resin, and marble. Her labor-intensive sculptures involve working on the pieces both in wax and bronze, then applying a patina in the foundry, and detailed finishes in her studio.
Organized by the Global Arts Affairs Foundation (GAA) and hosted by the European Cultural Center, Feuerman, will be exhibiting nine new outdoor painted bronze sculptures in the Giardino Della Marinaress (Riva dei Sette Martiri, 30122 Venezia, Italy). The first opening will be on Thursday, May 11, 2017 and the next on Friday, May 12 from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm in the park. The Exhibition will be open to the public beginning May 13 through December 5, 2017; open 10:00 am -? 6:00 pm daily. GAA is a non-profit organization that aims to heighten awareness about contemporary art, architecture, and culture to make art more accessible to a wider international audience.
Bel Air Fine Art (Calle dello Spezier, 2765, 30124 Venezia, Italy), with over sixteen galleries throughout Europe and the Middle East, will present a series of Feuerman's sculptures. Bel Air Fine Art will host the opening on Friday, May 12 in the Giardino Della Marinanessa from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm with a reception at the Gallery for the artist from 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm.
Venissa will host a solo exhibition of Feuerman's sculptures at Venissa (Fondamenta di Santa Caterina, 3, 30142 Mazzorbo, Venezia VE, Italy) with a reception for the artist on Tuesday, May 9 at 6:00 pm. The exhibition will be open through September 2017. Venissa is their luxury boutique hotel and world-renowned restaurant on the Venetian lagoon island of Burano.
Carole A. Feuerman continues her focus on public outdoor sculptures and intimate studio artworks. Feuerman maintains two studios; in New York, NY and at Mana Contemporary in New Jersey. Her selected private collectors include the Emperor of Japan, President William & Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Norman Brahman, the Caldic Collection, Mark Parker, Ariella Wertheimer, Robert Hurst, and Malcolm Forbes. On an ongoing basis, Feuerman's work can be seen in selected galleries and museums worldwide.
