Ron Mueck

Are you familiar with the sculptor Ron Mueck?

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!

    I meet the two old ladies most days standing in the square, filling each other in on the latest gossip.

    OMG…so real looking, it makes one feel like a voyeur of sorts. I like the lady shopping. That's one way to carry the baby when one's hands are full.

    Hi Cheryl, that's one of my friend, G.G.'s favorite's, too. I'm hoping there's a bjorn carrier under there, for safety's sake, though.

    Never heard of this guy, but that's no surprise as he's never heard of me. I do like Wild Man and the one you chose for this post.
