    Art Insider Breakfast

    23rd May 2018
    10.30am

    The new programme of Women of Influence Breakfasts in the Donovan Bar launch with Carole Feuerman, a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture and dubbed ‘the reigning doyenne of super-realism’ by art historian John T. Spike.

    By making sculptures portraying her models in a lifelike manner, Feuerman’s prolific career has spanned four decades and four continents. Through her sculptures, she creates visual manifestations of the stories she wants to tell; of strength, survival, balance. By combining conventional sculptural materials of steel, bronze, and resin, with more unconventional media like water, sound, and video, she creates hybrid works of intricate energy and psychology.

    Feuerman exhibits in private and public collections, sculpture parks, galleries, and museums worldwide. Her works are often integrated with architecture and landscaping in the creation or renovation of buildings and sites. An especially important example is her monumental ‘Double Diver’ spiraling 36 feet in the air, and permanently sited in Silicon Valley.

    Feuerman has had nine solo museum retrospectives, exhibited extensively worldwide, and is included in the permanent collections of 19 museums. She has participated in the Venice Biennale four times, exhibited in Hong Kong at the National Museum of China and at the Arken Museum of Modern Art in Denmark amongst innumerable others. Her selected collectors include the Emperor of Japan, President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Norman Brahman, the Caldic Collection, Mark Parker, Ariella Wertheimer, Robert Hurst, and Malcolm Forbes.

    Based in New York but with her new show launching at Bel Air Gallery on Bond Street, this is an exceptional opportunity for guests to hear from the artist behind these extraordinary works as she hosts breakfast in conversation with Brown's Hotel's Art Expert-in-Residence, Maeve Doyle.

    Price: £15 (includes informal breakfast with tea/coffee and pastries)
