Carole A. Feuerman is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s most prominent hyperrealist sculptors. She has enjoyed five museum retrospectives to date, and has been included in prestigious exhibitions at, among other venues, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, State Hermitage in St. Petersburg, and the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, Italy.
Among the notable honors Feuerman has received are the Amelia Peabody Award, the Betty Parsons Award, the Lorenzo de Medici Prize at both the 2001 Biennale di Firenze and from the City of Florence, and First Prize at both the 2008 Beijing Biennale and the 2008 Beijing Olympic Fine Arts Exhibition. Her work is in the collections of His Majesty the Emperor of Japan, former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, Ms. Ariela Wertheimer, the Forbes Magazine Collection, and the Caldic Collection, among others. Selected public collections include The Fort Lauderdale Museum, The Bass Museum, The Tampa Museum, The El Paso Museum, The Boca Raton Museum, The Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami, Amarillo Art Museum, Queensborough Community College Museum, Brandeis University, Vin & Sprithistoriska Museet, and Grounds for Sculpture.
In the past ten years she has been honored with prominent solo exhibitions, included in prestigious shows around the world, and written about in numerous publications. Her work was featured in “An American Odyssey, 1945/1980: Debating Modernism”, curated by Stephen C. Foster, a survey including over a hundred works of American icons in art, accompanied by a book in full color, that traversed Spain before coming to New York in 2004. The following year she was given a comprehensive one-person show, entitled “Resin to Bronze Topographies”, at Queensborough Community College of the City University of New York. In 2007 Feuerman’s solo exhibition, “By the Sea,” was held at the Pavilion Paradiso in the Venice Biennale. This was followed by her solo show “Lust & Desire” at the Art-st-Urban Museum in Luzern, Switzerland. In 2008, in addition to first prize in both the Third International Beijing Biennale and Beijing Olympic Fine Arts Exhibition, Feuerman mounted a solo show entitled “La Scultura Incontra la Realta” at Florence’s Moretti Fine Art, and was included in Venice’s OPEN International Sculpture Exhibition. At the end of 2008, Feuerman’s retrospective, “Silence-Passion-Expression,” was shown at the Amarillo Art Museum in Texas and nominated by the AISEI for the best Monographic Exhibition for 2008-2009. Her sculpture “Grande Catalina” appeared in “A History of Western Art” written by Antony Mason and John T. Spike and published by Abrams Press. In 2009, Feuerman was the featured artist in “46 XX”, an exhibition of four female artists at Moscow’s Na Solyanke State Gallery, and showcased in a solo outdoor exhibition along with Etruscan Sculpture at the Archeological Museum in Fiesole, Italy. Following that, Feuerman had a solo exhibition entitled “Swimmers, Bathers, Nudes” at Jim Kempner Fine Art in New York and was included in “Art and Illusion: Masterpieces of trompe-l’oeil from Antiquity to the Present” at the Palazzo Strozzi.
This decade began with the publication by Hudson Hills Press of the second edition of Carole A. Feuerman: Sculpture, written by Eleanor Munro and David Finn, the latest in a long string of publications and catalogues going back more than thirty years. In March, her sculpture “Monumental Shower” was exhibited along with 140 works by 90 artists including Pierre Bonnard, Louise Bourgeois, William N. Copley, Edgar Degas, Albrecht Durer, and David Hockney in “Intimacy, Bathing in Art” at the Kunstmuseum Ahlen in Ahlen, Germany and accompanied by a full colored book of the exhibition.
She is currently exhibiting in her fifth retrospective at the El Paso Museum of Art in Texas entitled “Earth Water Air Fire” which showcases fifty-two sculptures, premiering her interactive video installations and photography. The year will finish with a showing by Biba Gallery at “Scope Miami” and a solo exhibition December 9th at the Elaine Baker Gallery in conjunction with the Boca Raton Museum in Florida.
Five international solo shows are scheduled for 2011. The first in March at Galerie Hubner in Frankfurt followed by an exhibition in Zurich, which will travel to Mykonos with Rarity Gallery. In May Feuerman will exhibit at New Gallery in Hong Kong and in Porto Cervo with the Louise Alexander Gallery. Scheduled for 2012 so far is a spring exhibition at Jim Kempner Fine Art in New York.
