Matthew Feuer

"Every time I work from the model I learn something new."

Feuer has been drawing and sculpting from the human figure for decades. He works quickly and decisively as he moves his modeling stand around the live model, working to integrate each view into a unified whole. The surfaces of Feuer's studies are purposely left rough to convey the immediacy of his encounter with the model.

Feuer works from live models to study the gesture, movement, and mass of the human figure. Each sculpture is a set of hundreds of notations he makes in clay as he studies the model. The clay studies are fired in a kiln to become durable terracotta sculptures.

Feuer received his Master of Fine Art in Sculpture from the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated with a BA from Haverford College and studied at the New York School of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture. In 2007 he was selected for the Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program. Among his awards is the Geraldine R. Dodge Fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center.
