FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Golden Waters: Light Installation by Grimanesa Amorós
  Extends From Soleri Bridge in Scottsdale, Arizona

 June-September 2015

Scottsdale – Golden Waters, a temporary light installation by artist Grimanesa Amorós, which extends from the famous Soleri Bridge, is on view now until September 30, 2015.  Scottsdale Public Art, a leader of defining art in the public realm, is the sponsor of the installation.
 
Inspired by and reflecting the natural elegance of the Arizona canal, a nearly fifty mile long body of water that runs through Scottsdale, Golden Waters is mounted on a secure structure attached to the bridge, designed by artist, architect and philosopher Paolo Soleri. The hovering light sculpture extends parallel to the canal channel eighty feet west of the bridge. Golden Waters’ LED tubing system appears to rise from the canal waters below, celebrating the union of light and water.
 
The vertical and horizontal lines of the installation are a metaphor for the dynamic balance between urban and natural forces that can be experienced simultaneously. Golden Waters hopes to engage the viewer by emphasizing a unique perspective on nature and landscape.
 
 
About Grimanesa Amorós
 
Grimanesa Amorós was born in Lima, Peru and lives and works in New York City. She is a multidisciplinary artist with diverse interests in the fields of social history, scientific research and critical theory, which have greatly influenced her work.
Amorós researches the locations, histories and communities of the installation sites. Her process remains organic and instinctive. This intuitive relationship to technology is a distinctive feature of Amorós’ practice. Her works incorporates elements from sculpture, video, lighting, and technology to create site-specific installations to engage architecture and create community.Grimanesa Amorós has often drawn upon important Peruvian cultural legacies for inspiration for her large-scale light- based installations, which she has presented around the globe from Mexico, Tel Aviv and Beijing to New York’s Times Square. She continues to be inspired from Peru’s history for her art but she does not hold an essentialist or nostalgic view of her subject. She often gives talks at museums, foundations and universities where her lectures not only attract future artists but students and faculty engaged with science and technology. It feels somewhere in the art of Grimanesa Amorós, the past is meeting the future. Amorós has exhibited in the United States, Europe, Asia, Middle East and Latin America.

Seattle Art Fair visitors filled the wide aisles of the CenturyLink Field Event Center and flocked to Basecamp, Olson Kundig's site-specific Collectors Lounge. Acting as a conduit between outside and in, the space serves as a gathering point and place for conversation and contemplation. Olson Kundig's design celebrates the pioneering spirit of the Pacific Northwest, using wood, ​fabric, and native plantings to evoke the simple elegance of nature and bridge the fair with the surrounding landscape.

In Chicago deffinattly catch this: Carole A. Feuerman | New Works July 31 – September 15, 2015 Artist Cocktail Reception: July 31, 5-8pm





Carole A. Feuerman | New Works
July 31 – September 15, 2015
Artist Cocktail Reception: July 31, 5-8pm

Miniature Serena, 2015, Oil on resin with red Swarovski Crystal cap, 10 x 17 x 8 inches, Unique


Detail: 
Next Summer, 2012, Oil on Resin, 39 x 54 x 50 in., Edition 2/6













Chicago, IL (May 19, 2015) - KM Fine Arts is pleased to announce Carole A. Feuerman | New Works, a solo exhibition of new sculptures by the artist, on view from July 31, – September 15, 2015 at the gallery’s Chicago location at 43 East Oak Street, Chicago, IL 60611. The exhibition will feature a selection of both life-size and small-scale works by the artist. An opening reception will be held on Friday, July 31, from 6-9pm with the artist in attendance.

Carole Feuerman (b.1945) has received critical acclaim for her hyperrealist sculptures of swimmers and bathers for over forty years. A number of her most iconic images, including Balance, Serena and Miniature Quan will be featured in the exhibition alongside life-size works, Christina and Next Summer. Executed in painted resin with tactile flesh and meticulous detail, Feuerman’s sculptures have a presence that is both contemporary and classical. While it is not uncommon for hyperrealist work to seem cold and unapproachable, Feuerman’s bathers, balanced and calm, are unexpectedly intimate and inviting.

Genuine mink fur is used for the replication of eyelashes and hair, and the details of the tanned skin, fingernails, and bathing suit ripples are painstakingly painted on. These details combined with the perfectly formed water droplets made of clear resin create astonishingly life-like sculptures. A number of swimmers are even dressed with swim caps that are bejeweled with red and crystalline Swarovski Crystals. The artist states that she, “sculpt[s] the human figure so lifelike, the pieces seem to breathe...This can take up to 100 different coats of paint, and glazing and sanding in between coats, to get the finish and luminosity needed. From start to finish, the process of creating a sculpture can take from 6 months to several years."


Detail: Next Summer, 2012, Oil on Resin, 39 x 54 x 50 in., Edition 2/6
In addition to her resin and oil sculptures, Feuerman is also works actively with bronze. Two of her bronze works, Miniature Tree and Miniature Diver will be featured in the exhibition. The body of the diver is arched into a sensuous C-shape and speaks to her understanding of the Golden Mean: an ancient mathematical equation epitomizing balance and proportion. The bather featured in Miniature Tree is posed with an S-curve, or contrapposto, typical of classic Greek and later Renaissance sculpture. 
Feuerman lives and works in New York. She has had six museum retrospectives and her work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the 2008 Olympic Fine Arts Exhibition, the Venice Biennale, The State Hermitage, and The Palazzo Strozzi Foundation, to name a few. Among her many honors are 1st-Prize-Best in Show at the Beijing Biennale, the Amelia Peabody Sculpture Award, the Betty Parsons Sculpture Award, and the Medici Award. Her work is in the selected collections of His Majesty the Emperor of Japan, President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Mikhail Gorbachev, the Forbes Magazine Collection, the Caldic Collection, and Credit Suisse Collection. Selected public collections include Grounds for Sculpture, the El Paso Museum of Art, the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Bass Museum and Art-st-Urban.

In 2000, she was elected to be a member of the International Woman’s Forum, where preeminent leaders of diverse professional achievement from finance to fine arts come together to make a difference and to take an active, leadership role in matters of importance. In 2013 her sculpture, The General’s Daughter was featured in the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.

There are four full-color monographs written about her work: Carole Feuerman Sculpture, both editions published by Hudson Hills Press, La Scultura in Contra la Realta, which is available in multiple languages, and Swimmers, published by The Artist Book Foundation.
