I came across this article over the weekend and decided to share it here because someday, when I’m thinking to myself, “I’d really like to see that sculpture of the tiny naked woman with the sticks.”, I willl know just where to find her. I won’t have to spend half my day googling “naked lady with sticks” and sorting through all manner of questionable links.
Ron Mueck’s sculptures are described as hyperrealistic. They are realistic, but what I love about them even more than that is how he plays with scale. My favorite sculpture is the lady with sticks, but my favorite photo in this series is the one of the school girls all checking out the “Wild man”. I would have been checking him out, too, ladies, but I probably would have been giggling a lot more than you all appear to be. In fact, my instructor would probably have had to separate me from the group until I could control myself. Ah, good times.
Do you have a favorite?
Have a good day, out there!
