Overview

—Revised edition featuring recent work and an extensive new biography of one of the major figurative sculptors working in America today —Feuerman's monumental Olympic Swimmer was featured in the Olympic Fine Arts exhibition at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, the largest piece commissioned from an American artist Carole A. Feuerman's sculpture combines breathtaking super-realist technique with a humanist approach to her subjects. This revised monograph features David Finn's dramatic photographs covering nearly three decades of her work, including many enlarged details and multiple views that provide a cinematic experience. The work-in resin, cast marble, bronze, and other materials, often painted-ranges from early erotic reliefs through life-size sculptures of athletes and nudes. Her work is motivated by questions about the nature of reality, and her remarkable artistic skill leads the viewer to the same questions. Yet beyond the simulacrum of reality, Feuerman also manages to convey the feeling behind the intense physicality, the passion, and sensuality of mundane poses.
