Carole A. Feuerman

Fifty Years of Looking Good

With Contributions by John Yau and Claudia Moscovici
Carole A. Feuerman is one of the founding members of the hyperrealist movement in American sculpture that began in the 1970s and continues to capture the attention and acclaim of both the public and prominent art critics to the present day. After an early commercial career in illustration, Feuerman rose to fame as one of just three artists, including Duane Hanson and John De Andrea, who portrayed their models precisely as they were. Her works—especially the lifelike portrayals of swimmers for which she is best known—have been displayed in numerous group shows and solo exhibitions at museums and art fairs worldwide.
The most comprehensive survey of Feuerman’s work to date, Carole A. Feuerman: Fifty Years of Looking Good is lavishly illustrated with 120 color photographs. Over five decades, Feuerman has worked in a variety of materials and media, including marble, bronze, vinyl, resin, and stainless steel, and her work is marked by a thorough mastery of each. Her most common subject is the female figure—often depicted in a moment of quiet and sometimes sensual introspection. Her sculptures evoke a female state of mind rather than an alluring body meant to attract the male gaze. They suggest that women see themselves differently than men see them, as more innately instinctive.
