VENICE, Italy, May 9, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Carole A. Feuerman returns to Venice for the occasion of My Stories, her solo show in the Church of the Pietà, in parallel with the Biennale di Arte, Venezia. The show continues until November 27, 2022. Presented by Bel-Air Fine Art, her exhibition focuses on the human body through the double treatment of the immediate to eternity, to reveal the expressive path of the artist who has founded and marked the history of hyperrealist sculpture over the last 50 years.
My Stories is a summation of the artist's narrative, ranging from her childhood to her more recent encounters in which she captivates the essence of a person's feelings in a single pose. Her journey is revealed through the dialogue with the exhibition space of the Church of the Pietà, also known as "Vivaldi's Church," because this is where the great Maestro worked.
The artist subtends a part of herself in each work to bring out universal feelings of survival, strength, and perseverance. In her sculptures 'Serenity' and 'Perseverance', the inspiration is linked to a specific feeling that is reflected in the movement of the sculptures. 'Eyes Open', created during the pandemic, is precisely in the divergence between the title and the work, depicting a woman with her eyes closed, that the artist invites us to reflect on these tumultuous times.
The exhibition is curated by Paolo De Grandis and Carlotta Scarpa, of PDG Arte Communications, and is organized by Bel-Air Fine Art.
