I’ve been wanting to write a post on Ron Mueck for a while now, but there is so much information on him on the Internet that simply Googling his name will give you more than enough information and images.
This video gives a great synopsis of Ron Mueck’s process in creating his hyper-realistic sculptures. This is a man that knows his surface anatomy perfectly. He doesn’t just create static sculptures, but beings infused with emotion. You can stare at one of his sculptures and suddenly find yourself wondering what it’s thinking about. It’s really fascinating to watch the painstaking detail poured into every sculpture down to stitching each hair individually and painting each vein! Truly amazing.
