Super real! Ron Mueck

Imagine my elation – a trained figurative sculpture artist – when handed an invitation to the sneak preview of Ron Mueck’s exhibition at the Christchurch Art Gallery! I’ll be attending this Friday, before the show officially opens.

Believing lifesize sculpture is uninteresting because everyone encounters lifesize people everyday, Mueck plays with scale while capturing minute details of the human body. I’m anticipating an overwhelming sensory experience when faced with thirteen of  Mueck’s hyper-realisitc sculptures! Some monumental, others miniscule.

As one of the first people into the show, I’ll be sure to post my impressions. Watch this space!

In the meantime, why not read about Ron Mueck or brush up on your realist art and artists knowledge?

    I can’t wait for this one myself, it looks stunning and will probably one I’ll have to go to more than once!
    I love that they have had to hire extra people to keep an eye on us mere mortals in case we are tempted to touch… must be great to tempt us in such hallowed halls as the ART GALLERY!
