Carole A. Feuerman exhibits at the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Rome
Open from July 14 to October 10
NEW YORK, July 20, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The ninth edition of the exhibition project “From La Biennale di Venezia & Open to Rome. International Perspectives “presents Carole A. Feuerman’s sculptures for the first time in Rome.
The initiative is promoted by Roma Culture, the Capitol Superintendence for Cultural Heritage, in collaboration with PDG Arte Communications, in partnership with Bel-Air Fine Art – Contemporary Art Galleries, organized by Paul De Grandis and Carlotta Scarpa. It is presented under the high patronage of the Embassy of United States of America in Italy, with the services of the museum by Zètema Progetto Cultura.
Feuerman is internationally recognized as one of the foremost representatives of American sculpture and one of the world’s most renowned hyperrealist sculptors, with a career spanning more than four decades. She is “the queen of super-realism”, as defined by the art historian John spike. She creates life-size and tabletop works in bronze, resin and marble, and is best known for her large-scale figurative pieces of female swimmers.
Feuerman will present sculptures characterized by his best-known style in painted resin and some more recent works in bronze and gold leaf. The subjects dear to the artist and which have marked his expressive journey since the 1980s are swimmers, bathers and athletic figures. These are represented in the act of the greatest physical tension, until the last tributes to the great classics such as “The Thinker”, perfectly put in parallel with the old monastery of the eighteenth century which currently houses the spaces of exhibition at the Galleria d’Arte Moderna.
Feuerman’s swimmers, in their contemporary grace and perfection, borrow the power of beauty from the past and retain the proportion of great classical sculpture. “Bibi on the Ball” and “Monumental Brooke with Beach Ball” are empathetic works of a sensitive aesthetic immediacy that bring us closer and trigger a direct dialogue with their spectators. On the other hand, works in burnished bronze with a renewed vigor of the material are distinguished by stylistic counterpoints provided by the use of gold leaf.
Carole A. Feuerman (born 1945) is an American sculptor and author working in hyperrealism. She is one of the three major artists to have started the movement in the late 1970s. She is the only woman to sculpt in this style. His career is highlighted by emblematic figurative works of swimmers and dancers. She has been included in exhibitions at the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution; the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia; the Venice Biennale; and the Strozzi Palace in Florence, Italy, among others. Feuerman’s public works have been on display across the globe, including but not limited to: Central Park and SoHo, new York, Avenue George V at Paris, Port city of Hong Kong, Milan, Rome, Giardino della Marinaressa in Italy, New Bond Street, Canary Wharf to London, and Knokke Heist in Belgium.
