At The Book we have been admiring the beautiful work of Hyperrealist sculptor Ron Mueck.
His work is creating sculpture of the human form and all the hours he spends on these magnificent works can easily be noted as they so realistic! With believable replication of skin colouration and hair texture.
He either creates these sculptures gigantic or miniaturized, as he puts it; resulting in an uncomfortable “does not compute” moment when trying to comprehend exactly what you’re looking at.
The following video shows how magnificent and life like these pieces are: YouTube
Ron started as a puppeteer, creating models and puppets for children’s movies and TV shows. Most notably he worked on Jim Henson’s film Labyrinth.
His exhibition has opened in Paris and is on until the end of September.
Hope you enjoy them as much as us.
