ART MIAMI, in its 28th year, maintains a preeminent position in America’s modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a must-see destination for important works of art.
Survival of Serena is a stunning, lifelike sculpture depicting a female figure in a swimsuit and swim cap leaning on an inner-tube. Feuerman was inspired to make her most iconic sculpture by the immigrants she saw floating from Cuba into Key West.
Feuerman is recognized as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture, which emerged around 1970 in relation to photorealist painting. Together with contemporaries Duane Hanson, born in 1925, and John De Andrea, born in 1941, Feuerman was one of the three leaders in making lifelike sculptures that portray their models precisely.Feuerman’s prolific career has spanned over four decades and her works continue to be exhibited worldwide. In Italy, she has exhibited four times in the Venice Biennale, in the Piazza della Republica; and the Teatro Romano e Museum Civico in Fiesole. In Asia, she has exhibited in Harbour City, Hong Kong; The National Museum of China, Shanghai, Huan Tai Hu Museum, Jiangsu, China; and the Clayarch Museum, Daejeon Museum and Suwon Museums in Korea. Numerous public sculptures have appeared in outdoor venues, including Petrosino Square in New York City and the Frederik Meijer Sculpture Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan. One of Feuerman’s most recognizable pieces, The Golden Mean, is owned by the city of Peekskill and can be seen in Riverfront Green Park overlooking the Hudson River.
