Carole Feuerman is widely acknowledged as one of the most prominent hyper-realist sculptors of the world. In 2004, she participated in the exhibit An American Odyssey 1945-1980 together with some of the most prominent post-war American artists of the post-WWII era. In the following year she presented two workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art working specifically with inner city youths. In 2006, her "painting with fire" sculpture "Zeus and Hera," was installed in the permanent collection of the prestigious "Grounds for Sculpture" in Hamilton, New Jersey.
During the mid-1990s, Carole Feuerman promising career was cut short by an unfortunate incident. One of her sculptures fell on her hand and caused enough injury to prevent her from being able to render the exacting detail that her super-realist work demanded. Her response was to move towards a more expressionistic and de-constructivist mode of sculptural creation. She started creating sculptures of metal, particularly bronze and aluminum.
Carole Feuerman has several unpainted sculptures in her collection. It’ll be a shame if these will never get completed.
