Markowicz Fine Art : Carol Feuerman, Miami Jan14-Feb, 29th,

MIAMI, FL – January 14, 2016 – Markowicz Fine Art, from the Miami Design District, is pleased to announce the gallery will be
exhibiting world-renowned sculptor Carole A. Feuerman’s hyperrealistic sculptures starting January 24th, 2016, through February 29th, 2016.

Markowicz Fine Art will be one of only two galleries in the United States to hold a permanent collection of sculptures in various techniques by Feuerman.

To celebrate the new long-term partnership, Markowicz Fine Art will host a private media and collectors only preview party of Feuerman’s new collection – including miniature versions of her iconic water sculptures – on Saturday, January 23rd, 2016, from 7-9 p.m. at the gallery in the Miami Design District. Feuerman will meet-and-greet attendees, and sign copies of her new book “Swimmers” and have a silk screen print made especially for the event.

Feuerman held a splashing pop-up exhibition with more than 10 pieces in Miami during Art Basel 2015 at the National Hotel in Miami Beach, including “The Golden Mean,” a 16-foot male diver statue representing the struggles to achieve perfect balance; and her iconic “Survival of Serena.” “The Golden Mean” is still on display at the hotel through November 2016.

Known for her monumental sculptures of the human form, Feuerman is the only figurative artist to hyper-realistically paint bronze for use in outdoor public art. Actively sculpting and exhibiting since the late 70’s, Feuerman is called the “Doyenne of Hyperrealism.” She is also the originator of the “painting with fire” technique, in which she pours, splatters and splashes six or more different molten metals to create unique art.

Through her work, Feuerman explores the three-dimensional world of figurative sculpture. Her interest in realism is indicative of her desire to sculpt the human body; forging historical links with the past while revealing her compelling vision for the future.  Included in numerous notable biennales and public collections, Feuerman continues to push the boundaries of sculpture. Her private collectors include the Emperor of Japan, Mr. William and Hillary Clinton, Norman Brahman, the Caldic Collection, Mark Parker, William Mack, Ariella Wertheimer, Robert Hurst, and Malcolm Forbes. In 2011, the Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture Foundation was formed in order to generate excitement and passion for the arts and to inspire and reward deserving artists with exhibition opportunities and internships for college credit and grants.

Feuerman’s solo exhibitions can be seen in Italy, Germany and China, and has several national public collections from New York to California. Several of her sculptures in bronze are owned and permanently installed in public, including “The Golden Mean,” which stands in Riverfront Green Park overlooking the Hudson River in Peekskill, New York, and “The Double Diver,” in Sunnyvale, California.  Sculptures in various techniques by Feuerman have been acquired for the permanent collections of nineteen American art museums. Feuerman’s exclusive collection in Miami is represented by Markowicz Fine Art.

Pink Floyd fans: Syd Barrett offical web site

Syd Barrett
Official Website Launch
6 January 2016
Wednesday 6th January marks what would have been the 70th birthday of Syd Barrett, founder member of the Pink Floyd and one of the most influential musicians in British pop history. 

To mark the occasion, Syd Barrett’s new official website will be launched at 12 noon on Wednesday (GMT). Celebrating his unique life and career, both of which continue to inspire and enthral, it is a unique resource that offers an unrivalled insight into this enigmatic musician.

The website has been created by those who knew him best - his family and friends. The clean, modern design offers an intimate experience for Syd’s fans, incorporating his favourite colour indigo and offering previously unseen, restored family photographs.

Going forward, regular updates will reveal even more exclusive material, photographs and information. Featured songs will receive detailed analysis alongside reviews, essays and images from a range of celebrity guest writers.

Syd’s nephew Ian Barrett says “2016 promises to be an exciting year for Syd Barrett’s fans and we hope that in keeping with my uncle’s talents, this online resource will act as a springboard, inspiring a new generation of artists - both musical and visual.”

Syd Barrett was with the Pink Floyd for just three years (1965 to1968), yet when the band released their greatest hits album in 2001 he had written over a fifth of the tracks.

Born Roger Keith Barrett in 1946 in Cambridge, Syd obtained his nickname from regulars at a local jazz club who christened him after an old drummer from the area.

At the age of seventeen Barrett left Cambridge to study at London’s Camberwell Art School where he was reunited with his old friend Roger Waters. He joined Roger’s band the Pink Floyd and quickly became their main songwriter. The band was named after two Georgia blues men Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. Their experiments with feedback and electronic sound quickly made them the hippest band among London’s early psychedelic set.

Although still a prolific songwriter, Syd’s experimentation with drugs meant his grasp on reality was slipping away. He didn’t turn up for interviews and started to behave erratically, to the extent that an American tour had to be cut short.

In January 1968 the band excused Syd from performing live to enable him to concentrate on songwriting and David Gilmour was asked to take his place. By 1968 the band had parted ways with Syd, leaving him to record and release two solo albums ‘The Madcap Laughs’ and ‘Barrett’ and a single ‘Octopus’.

1970 saw Syd retreat to his mothers house in Cambridge where he formed The Stars with some local musicians though his involvement was shortlived. The following years saw him moving between Cambridge and London, where he stayed on friends’ floors. In 1978, having tired of London, he walked back to Cambridge, where he lived reclusively until his death on 7th July 2006, aged sixty.
