Carole A. Feuerman was born in Connecticut, but has always lived and worked in New York, between Soho and Chelsea. As noted by John Spike, she was a full generation younger than Duane Hanson and John de Andrea, but is one of the pioneers of life-sized and lifelike figure sculpture, down to the tiniest detail. In the early 70’s, while Hanson was exhibiting his supermarket shoppers and other Pop Art satires, Feuerman was drawing album art for Alice Cooper and the Rolling Stones (Monkey Man). When she turned to sculpture in 1978, she took super-realism in a new direction: she got personal.
