Carole A. Feuerman (1945) is an American superrealist sculptor born in Hartford, Connecticut and currently lives and works in New York.

Book Chapters

“Through my sculptures I convey my feelings about life and art. It is far easier for me to express my emotions through sculpture than through words. In this way, my work speaks to the viewer, evoking both an emotional and an intellectual response.”

Why Read It?

my hyperrealist life and legacy

In this intimate, honest memoir, I aim to educate my readers about my successes and my journey to survive the odds. Through balance and perseverance, I have learned how to become successful, follow their dreams, and live a rewarding life. This updated version brings my readers to 2022 and tells more details that I didn’t say in the first version.

Whether by finding new work, achieving financial success, or contemplating failure, fear has a special place in our emotional lives. By compulsion, our minds are designed to let fear in; without it, we would never survive. But how does a person fulfill their goals and keep anxiety away? Conquering fear is about self-awareness and understanding our inner strengths. Through the course of my life, I’ve learned how to handle adversity. You can read what I have done to become successful and happy.

L’EREDITÀ DI UNA VITA IPERREALISTA di Carole A. Feuerman racconta una storia di resilienza e di lotta con sé stessi e con il mondo esterno per raggiungere l’impossibile. Basato sulla storia vera di Carole, descrive con vivida precisione gli alti e i bassi del suo viaggio verso il successo e come, nel corso della sua vita, l’arte sia sempre stata la sua salvezza.

I percorsi e le transizioni che avvengono nella vita degli artisti meritano di essere raccontati. I saggi di storia dell’arte parlano degli artisti e delle loro opere ma non possono cogliere i conflitti, le contraddizioni e le svolte esistenziali nelle loro vite personali. Le autobiografie invece lo fanno e ci raccontano le loro storie, così come le hanno vissute.

Davvero un gran bel libro!

Questo libro di Carole Feuerman era in uscita da tempo. Ho aspettato a lungo un libro che raccontasse tutto di lei con le sue stesse parole. Sembra ti stia parlando faccia a faccia.

Barbara Peters


Una storia da raccontare. Scrive come se la stesse narrando. Il libro è reale e le immagini di repertorio ne aumentano il senso di realtà, permettendoci di ripercorrere la sua vita in diverse fasi. È una storia meravigliosa dei suoi alti e bassi esistenziali e del suo viaggio verso traguardi straordinari.

Quando mi ha affidato il suo testo, conoscevo solo le opere di Carole. Da allora ci siamo incontrati di persona una sola volta, mesi dopo, ma è stato come se fossimo amici da sempre. Le grandi storie si distinguono per la capacità di creare empatia con il lettore. Lavorando sul libro di Carole, ho sofferto, gioito, amato insieme a lei, così il suo racconto è diventato anche il mio.
