Ron Mueck is an Australian hyper-realist sculptor working in the United Kingdom. Hyper-realist sculptures are striking and they show no traces of the artist’s hand, which allows each work to create its own psychological effect – from defiance to puzzlement to sorrow – without an apparent mediator. The artist’s sculptures not only engage the viewer in an emotional voyage from birth to death, but present a poignant image of the existential problem of the human condition. The aura that emanates from each work is so strong that the object seems to demand an open-ended dialogue between two selves: sculpture and viewer.

  1. Thanks for visiting. Your work not known to me until now! “Realism” takes on a new meaning once I see it.
    Here we see the human body as perhaps only at home in the mirror, where we accept it without consciously seeing it.
    To suddenly be confronted with these works takes you aback, often finding yourself recoiling – with a sort of – I don’t look like that, do I?
    It’s maybe dis-quietening but also fascinating and above all very, very skillful.
    Thank you for the opportunity to “see” us honestly and perhaps as we are and not what we want to be.

  2. Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thank you, However I
    am going through difficulties with your RSS. I don’t understand the
