Carole A. Feuerman’s hyperrealistic sculptures of human subjects like swimmers, divers, and dancers are undeniably lifelike and magical in their dreamy state.
Feuerman is recognized as one of the world’s most renowned, influential, and popular hyperrealist sculptors. She is best known for her series of swimmers and bathers, a series she first began in the 1970s and continues to expand on today.
“Making a sculpture that is hyperrealistic is not just captured by outward perception, not merely defined by physical forms and spatial fields that blend together but also by interrelationships composed as much by the unseen as by the seen. In the end, it’s like a melting pot, where physicality, sensuality, perfection, and vitality become one.”
