Another photo of a pretty swimsuit model? Think again. In fact, gaze down at her cut-off legs and you might realize that what you're actually looking at is a hyperrealistic sculpture.
Like Ron Mueck, Carole Feuerman is a hyperrealist sculptor who creates mindblowing pieces of art. Having displayed her sculptures in everywhere from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, Feuerman is a contemporary sculptor at the top of her game. The level of detail Feuerman achieves, not only in skin tone and expression, but with permanent water drops, makes you truly appreciate the amount of time and patience that goes into each piece.
These behind the scenes photos of Feuerman at work are even more exciting than seeing the finished sculptures. It's almost as if she's waking sleeping giants, isn't it?
“Carole Feuerman knows there is gloom in the world, but she wants the viewer to share her celebration of life. It is the life that she breathes into the pieces after months of work that make them exist. And exist they do, as important contemporary sculptures that will prove themselves over the years.” – Richard Shack, Emeritus Board Chairman of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Founder of NMMA, Board Member of Whitney Museum, 100 top art collectors
