Sculptress Carole A. Feuerman is world-renowned for her hyper-realistic, cast resin and oil painted sculptures of swimmers and bathers. They are really quite breathtaking. Jim Kempner Fine Art is currently hosting a show of Carole’s new works entitled The Golden Mean which has sculptures ranging in size from very tiny to large than life. Here are few pieces from the show.
She even paints water droplets on the skin – very cool!
Carole A Feuerman’s The Golden Mean runs through June 29th, 2013 at Jim Kempner Fine Art located at 501 West 23rd Street, on the Northwest corner of 23rd Street and Tenth Avenue in the Chelsea Gallery District, NYC.
Eastern European painter and sculptress, Agne Kisonaite, created this stunning sculpture, entitled simply Giant Lipstick, using over 5000 used lipstick tubes. Measuring a height of 2.5 meters (8 feet) with an overall weight of 200kg (440 pounds), the sculpture is incredibly modern and yet timelessly beautiful. Agne made the sculpture to draw attention to the need for green effort consciousness with regard to reduction, recycling and reuse here in our consumer culture
In her artist statement, she emphasizes that four tubes of lipstick are sold in the world every second and the packaging left cannot be recycled.
Please note that the top, or red colored part, of the sculpture is obviously comprised new, or rather unused lipsticks, and that the work was sponsored by Avon, who likely donated the lipsticks and tubes/packaging for use in the sculpture.

Japanese sculptress and wildly inventive contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama is currently exhibiting a variation on her large chrome balls sculpture installation known as Narcissus Garden over at Robert Miller Gallery on West 24th Street in Manhattan.
The delightfully reflective spheres are scattered across the floors of each room at the gallery and charm the viewer with their random (and yet not so random) organization.
