The Hyperrealistic Sculptures Of Ron Mueck [Pic]

Submitted by: ElectricEye 3 years ago in


London-based sculptor Ron Mueck, formerly a model maker and puppeteer for children"s television and films, has been creating fine art sculptures since 1996. Using resin, fiberglass, silicone, and many other materials, Mueck constructs hyperrealistic likenesses of human beings, while playing with scale. The detailed sculptures are captivating when viewed up close, as they may be many times larger or smaller than expected.

Those are very cool!
It is slightly disturbing when the reality of the size clashes with the realism of the sculpture.

Remember when "art" was pretty?
Well, at least this guy does have some obvious talent. It`s way better than the poop-papier-mache you see at most museums nowadays.

"So if I wipe my dick covered in finger paint on a roll of paper towels and call it "art" you would too?!?! "

"I" might not call it art but that doesn`t mean it isn`t art.

Just because you can do something, that doesn`t mean you should.

"That is in no way "hyper realistic"."

Of course it is. It is the very definition of hyperrealism.

yes, it`s art. If only one person thinks it`s art, it`s art.
