Cavalier Gallieres is pleased to present, Balance, by renowned hyperrealist sculptor Carole Feuerman. This startlingly lifelike piece challenges our perception and leaves viewers questioning how something so realistic could in fact be sculpture. Feuerman first sculpts her pieces in plaster, then casts them in bronze or resin, before being meticulously painting them to provide the final hyperrealist touch. Balance is a perfect example of Feuerman's entirely new approach to sculpture that has gained her placement in one of the seminal art historical texts, The History of Western Art. 

Carole Feuerman has been honored with six major museum retrospectives to date.  Her work has been showcased in numerous exhibitions including multiple Venice Biennales, the State Hermitage, the Palazzo Strozzi Foundation, the Kunstmuseum Ahlen, the Archeological Museum di Fiesole, and the Circulo de Bellas Artes.  She won first prize at the Austrian Biennale, the Florence Biennale, the 2008 Olympic Fine Art Exhibition, best in show at the Beijing Biennale, and won the Save The Arts Foundation Award as Museum Choice. 

Feuerman's work can be found in countless collections, including Forbes, the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the El Paso Museum of Art, and the Credit Swiss Union. Her patrons include President Bill Clinton, the Emperor of Japan, Henry Kissinger, and Mikhail Gorbachev.
