hyperrealist sculpture – ron mueck


Woman With Sticks

I first came across Australian artist Ron Mueck back in 2006, when he was exhibiting in a huge solo show at Edinburgh’s National Galleries of Scotland. Now his fascinating hyperrealist sculptures are fascinating elsewhere – at Mexico City’s San Ildefonso Museum.

His sculptures of the human body are always faithfully reproduced and yet always grossly exaggerated – either blown way out of proportion or reduced to miniature. Either in a state of sleep or gazing unaware and pensively out to the viewer, they are captivating and beckon the return state of the viewer, making the experience feel voyeuristic in nature.
