Carole Feuerman – Ultra-realistic Wax Figures

Carole A. Feuerman  is an American artist and hyper-realistic sculptor. Born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1945, she currently lives and works in New York. Feuerman is most known for her resin sculptures painted in oil, but she also utilizes other media such as bronze and stone.

She developed a technique called “painting with fire” where she pours, splatters and splashes up to five different molten metals that are 2000 degrees in temperature. Most recently she has introduced photography and video media as a component to her sculptural works and plans on creating more installations for 2011.

“All of my life, making art has been my passion. As I have experienced life, the forms that my work has taken have evolved and deepened and my love for creating has endured. I want my art to inspire the viewer to look closely at what stands before them. It is not the fleeting moment that I try to capture, but the universal feeling caught in that fleeting moment. I want the viewer to complete the story, to reflect and feel touched. If this connection could be for eternity, it would be my masterpiece.” ( Carole Feuerman)

She exhibits in galleries both nationally and abroad, and her work can be found in many public and private collections all over the world. She has enjoyed six museum retrospectives to date, and has been included in exhibitions at, among other venues, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, Italy.
