Biography

Carole A. Feuerman is recognized as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture. Together with Hanson and De Andrea, Feuerman is one of the three leaders that started the Hyperrealism movement in the late seventies by making sculptures portraying their models in a life-like manner. Dubbed ‘the reigning doyenne of super-realism’ by art historian John T. Spike, Feuerman has solidified her place in art history.

Feuerman’s prolific career spans over four decades and seven continents. She has had nine museum retrospectives and four catalogue raisonnés published. Her works are exhibited in private collections, galleries, parks, and museums worldwide. She has exhibited four times in the prestigious Venice Biennale, as well as in Piazza della Repubblica in Florence, Palazzo Grazie, the Teatro Romano e Museo Civico in Fiesole, and the Musei di Rimini. She has exhibited in Harbour City of Hong Kong, the National Museum of China in Shanghai, and Huan Tai Hu Museum in the Jiangsu province of China. She has exhibited at the Clayarch Gimhae Museum, Daejeon Museum, and Suwon Museum in Korea. In Germany, she has exhibited at the Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden, as well as the Contemporary Art Museum in Aachen. In Spain, she exhibited at Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao and the Academia de Bellas Artes de Madrid. She has exhibited at Marco Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey, and her work is currently on display in Denmark at the Arken Museum of Modern Art. Numerous public sculptures have been exhibited outdoors including Petrosino Square in New York City and the Frederik Meijer Sculpture Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan. One of Feuerman’s most recognizable pieces, 'The Golden Mean', is owned by the City of Peekskill, NY, and can be seen in Riverfront Green Park overlooking the Hudson River. Her monumental 'Double Diver', spiraling 36 feet in the air, is permanently sited in Silicon Valley and owned by the City of Sunnyvale, California.

Her sculpture, 'The General’s Daughter', which she exhibited at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., was selected for the traveling museum exhibition called, 'Hyperrealist Sculpture 1973-2017'.
