You may remember the “origami-polygonal shaped” animal sculptures that turned Park Avenue into a wild jungle with colorful roaming creatures last year, but this year they’re splashing into something different!
World-renowned artist, Carole A. Feuerman, and leading international art gallery, Galeries Bartoux, have unveiled their stunning hyperrealistic swimming sculptures that are plunging into Park Avenue, just in time for the warm weather.
Carole A. Feuerman is an American sculptor and author known for her hyperrealistic works of art.
Being one of the three artists credited with starting the movement in the late 1970s, she is best known for her works depicting swimmers and dancers and is the only woman to sculpt in this style.
“This exhibition is not just about art but about creating a moment of pause and reflection for the viewers. A unique opportunity to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse yourself in a surreal world of art,” said Carole A. Feuerman.
These hyperrealistic swimming sculptures are Patrons of Park Avenue’s (POPA) second ever art installation, and they’ve popped up on Park Avenue between 34th and 38th Streets in Murray Hill.
“We are honored to surprise you with the monumental artworks of hyperrealism pioneer Carole A. Feuerman on the famous Park Avenue malls of New York City. For 30 years we have strived to make art like this accessible to as many people as possible,” said Laura Bartoux of Galeries Bartoux.
