Hyperrealism is a term used in the art world to describe the work of sculptures like Ron Mueck and Carole Feuerman. I have seen Ron’s work before as have many people but Carole is a new name to me even though she has had exhibitions at places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
In the words of Richard Shack, Emeritus Board Chairman of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles
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
Personally, I just think these are awesome sculptures.
