About the Work
Rendered in exquisite detail, the cast resin figure of a diver in a handstand is patinated in a rich black. The diver's cap is plated in gold. This work by American sculpture Carole Feuerman is number one out of an edition of 18. The hollow granite base measures 3 x 14 inches. A pioneer in Hyperrealism that grew from Photorealism in the 1970s, Feuerman is known for her life-size and monumental sculptures of swimmers. Working in a variety of media including resin, marble and bronze, Feuerman’s sensuous works are typically rendered in bold, saturated pigments.
