NEW YORK, NY, December 15, 2017 — Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Carole A. Feuerman with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Ms. Feuerman celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Sculptor, artist, and president of Feuerman Studios, Inc. since 1967, Ms. Feuerman is best known for her sculptures of swimmers. Growing up, her fondest memories were of times spent at Jones Beach on Long Island. She is recognized as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture, and started in the late '70s by making life-sized sculptures that portrayed their models precisely. They are meticulously detailed to create the illusion of reality. Dubbed “the reigning doyenne of super-realism” by art historian John T. Spike, Ms. Feuerman has solidified her place in art history.
Through her sculptures, Ms. Feuerman creates visual manifestations of the stories she wants to tell of survival, balance, and the struggle to achieve. She has produced a rich body of work spanning four decades and four continents. By combining conventional sculptural materials of steel, bronze, and resin with more unconventional media like water, light, sound, and video, Ms. Feuerman creates hybrid works of intricate energy and psychology. Her labor-intensive sculptures involve working on the pieces both in wax and bronze, applying a patina in the foundry, and detailed finishes in her studio. Her largest monumental outdoor work, “The Double Diver”, stands 36 feet tall and weighs 4.4 tons, made of steel. It balances perfectly on six-inch wrists in a feat of engineering, and is owned by the city of Sunnyvale, CA.
Ms. Feuerman has been featured in one-woman shows at sculpture parks, museums, galleries, and city spaces worldwide, including the Venice Biennale, Documental in Kassel, and Art Basel. She has had nine solo museum retrospectives, and has been included in the permanent collections of 19 different museums. There are now four full-color monographs written about her work, two editions of “Carole Feuerman Sculpture” published by Hudson Hills Press, “La Scultura Incontra la Realta”, available in multiple languages, and “Swimmers”, published by the Artist Book Foundation. “Grande Catalina”, her monumental sculpture, was featured at the 2007 Venice Biennale and was included in “A History of Western Art” published by Harry N. Abrams and written by Anthony Mason and John T. Spike.
Ms. Feuerman has taught, lectured, and presented workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, Columbia University, and Grounds for Sculpture. Responsible for founding the Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture Foundation, Ms. Feuerman formerly served on the review panel for the Annual State Arts Block Grants Program for the county of Hudson, NJ, and is on the board of trustees for the International Sculpture Center and the Chashama Foundation. A longtime member of the School of Visual Arts Alumni Association, the International Women's Forum of New York, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she was named an honorary committee member of the Sculptors Guild in 2017.
Born in Hartford, CT, Ms. Feuerman earned a Bachelor's degree at the School of Visual Arts in 1967, the same year she opened her own studio. She previously studied at Hofstra University and Temple University. In addition, she has been the recipient of numerous awards, most recently a Best in Show by the Huan Tai Hu Museum in 2016, as well as an Amelia Peabody Award, first prize in the Beijing Biennale and the Austrian Biennale, finalist in the World Trade Center Competition, and a Medici Award from the city of Florence, Italy in 2005. Married to Ron Cohen, she has had five children and five grandchildren. Ms. Feuerman has been included in various editions of Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the East, Who's Who in the World, and Who's Who of American Women.
