Ron Mueck: Hyper-Realist Sculptor

Ron Mueck putting curlers in the hair of a giant woman statue


Huge humans are the frequent subject of sculptor Ron Mueck's art practice.  These figures dominate space and at the same time convey the familiar poses and postures of vulnerability, loneliness and fatigue. The figures seem to express with such rawness - conveying their thoughts so clearly through their gestures and facial expressions. I think that the scale magnifies the vulnerability of the figures in a thoroughly disarming way.
