Famed American hyperrealist sculptor Carole Feuerman unveiled her stunning, hyperrealistic 14-foot bronze sculpture of two dancers, titled “Strength,” at The National Hotel Miami Beach, on Wednesday, March 7th. Inspired by real-life dancers, Feuerman’s piece was modeled after American classical dancers Steven Melendez and Amanda Treiber, both from the New York Theatre Ballet. To commemorate the occasion, New World Symphony and New World School of the Arts performed during a special cocktail celebration at the hotel. Guests enjoyed light bites and handcrafted drinks, as well as a live jazz show at the hotel’s Blues Bar.
“Strength” is one of the most recent pieces in a series of more than 15 sculptures of dancers that Feuerman created over the past two decades. Feuerman’s other pieces are currently exhibited at Markowicz Fine Art Gallery in the Miami Design District.
Feuerman is one of three artists who started the hyperrealism movement in the late ’70s, and the only figurative artist to hyper-realistically paint bronze for use in outdoor public art. Her solo exhibitions can be seen in Italy, Germany and China, and has several national public collections from New York to California.
