Ron Mueck

How much would you want to go to this exhibition!? Ron Mueck is an australian born hyperrealist sculptor starting his career as a puppeteer and model maker on film sets such as Labyrinth. The realism of his sculptures is astonishing and the way he plays with scale is very interesting, especially on his sculpture 'boy' which can be seen in the video, the cowering posture of what looks like a small feeble boy is immediatly put into question when you see he is 5 metres high. Ron Mueck controversially made a sculpture entitled 'dead dad' which was a perfect representation of his deceased father only at 1:3 scale, this was also the only sculpture in which he used his own hair.
