Carole Feuerman’s hyper realist sculptures

I first met Carole Feuerman‘s work last September while visiting Rarity Galery in Mykonos.
I was struck by the realist impression of her sculputures to the water dripping on their faces.
The head of a diver as if reaching out of the water, with drips covering his face, comes out through the wall, catching his first breath.

Most of her work has to do with water-related themes, she is most known for her swimmers, and she is one of Americas most acknowledged hyper-realist artists.
Her swimmers and bathers are impeccably sculpted, completed with translucent water drops, taking the concept of art imitating life to a new level.

Watch the process of her work for The Diver here:

Carole Feuerman’s work is included in the collections of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia; Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey; President Bill Clinton, Senator Hillary Clinton; Dr. Henry Kissinger, President Mikhail Gorbachev, the Forbes Magazine Collection, and many others. Feuerman’s selected honors include: First Prize in the 2008 Beijing Biennale, the Peabody Award, the Betty Parson Sculpture Award, and the Medici Award.
