I recently visited Carol Feuerman at her Manhattan studio. Carol and her assistants were simultaneously preparing work for three upcoming exhibitions in New York, London and Germany. Her studio was abuzz with activity with Carol juggling speaking with me and guiding and instructing her assistants.
Carol discussed the different techniques that she has used to create what she refers to as hyperrealist sculptures. She uses techniques ranging from casting live models to 3D modeling and printing. She explained that casting from life is not the straightforward process that it appears. Many hours are spent adapting and modifying the casts reworking the faces and the figures to make them express her intent. Carol often combines elements of older casts to create new figures. We also discussed the trails and tribulations of 3D modeling and printing. We agreed that the technology still has a way to go and she bemoaned the fact that even with 3D printing many hours must be spent filing, sanding and chasing the sculptures.
Carol’ s upcoming exhibitions include the following
