Feuer’s work has affinities to several sculptors including E.V. Day, Judy Pfaff, Richard Serra, and Mark di Suvero, all known for their dramatic use of materials, scale, and movement (actual or implied). Her ongoing investigation of physical and emotional states of uncertainty aligns her work with the present-day reality and the all-too-common reporting of one natural and human-made disaster after another.
Feuer received a BFA from the University of Manitoba in 2005 and her MFA in the Department of Sculpture and Extended Media at Virginia Commonwealth University in 2009. She has had solo exhibitions at Outerworks Gallery, Winnipeg, Canada; FLUXspace, Philadelphia; Dorfman Projects, New York; Firehouse Gallery, Burlington, VT; and Transformer Gallery, Washington DC. She has been awarded residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, The MacDowell Colony, and the Millay Colony. She will be in residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, NE in 2011.
