Ron Mueck

Two Women by Ron Mueck
The Australian artist Ron Mueck makes giant, and small ones, hyper realistic sculptures. Mueck’s sculptures faithfully reproduce the minute detail of the human body, but play with scale to produce disconcertingly jarring visual images. His five metre high sculpture Boy was a feature in the Millennium Dome and later exhibited in the Venice Biennale.

Until February 3 you can see Mueck’s works at the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibition site contains sculpture’s pictures, a page with questions and answer page, video and behind the scenes pictures, that points to this photoset on Flickr. The complete video about Mueck’s sculptures and influences can be watch at blip.tv.

For those, as me, whose can’t see his amazing sculptures live, I suggest those links with pictures of his works: Creative Pool – gallery; Ron MueckWashington Post slideshow; The body beautiful – the Guardian Unlimited article; Ron Mueck at the National Galleries of Scotland; James Cohan Gallery. BTW, almost all the links and videos, excluding Wikipedia article, contains some representational nudity.
