Whether or not you’re an art enthusiast, this newly launched art exhibition in partnership with NYC non-profit, Chashama Foundation, will have you doing double-takes. Situated at the corner of Broadway and Exchange Place in New York City’s Financial District, Carole Feuerman’s hyperrealistic sculptures placed front and center near the entryway beg for a closer look.
A quick glance around and you realize there is a quirky swim theme. “For me,” Ms. Fuerman reflects, “swimmers represent peace, serenity, and survival.”
Ladies fashioned in vintage swim caps and modest suits share a nonchalant “life’s a beach” sort of vibe that brings you back to your last vacation.
Wouldn’t these sculptures be so fun sitting on top of a resort pond or reflecting pool somewhere?
The paintings shared a vibrant, happy tone -something that Juliet could relate to.
Apparently though Carole Feuerman’s sculptures had achieved worldwide fame, this was the first time her paintings and prints were on view to the public. I thought they were glorious and reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s pop art.
Perhaps the most surprising element to this FIDI art exhibit however was the lone man sitting in the corner seemingly watching us observe the female figurines.
He caught Juliet by surprise as she wondered out loud whether he was also a statue. True to the artist’s form, she detailed out all the imperfections. Here Juliet is pointing out his scuffed up sneakers saying maybe someone stepped on him. hah
If you’re in the area and have a few minutes to spare, I highly suggest you check this out. It’s a fun, break from the ordinary and makes you re-examine what you know to be true.
